I understand. But believe me, your patches are very likely to land
mainline faster if you send them in small chunks. This might not be true
for every subsystems, but netdev is very responsive. This is even more
true since this series has no-no (such as the sysfs entries) which
guarantees the whole patch series to be rejected.

Sending portions of your local work branch then rebase it against
net-next/master is a usual development process.
