Once the patch lands in git, it's sort of interesting to know its
history and the context surrounding this acceptance, but there is
already so much context being lost already (like where are all other
patches from the same patch series for instance?) that I wonder if we
should not add more to it (like links to past iterations and so on).

Thanks for explaining how DRM works in that regard, though.
