I usually cherry-pick tags that I see in reply to the *latest* version
of the patch (I have a rudimentary script to do this).

I noticed that there was an ack on v1 form Marc Z that's missing in v2.
Maybe it no longer applies, I can't tell, but I usually expect
subsequent versions of a patch to include all the previously given acks
(of course, if they still apply, sometimes a patch rewrite means
dropping those tags).
