It might make sense to go through your series, determine who touched
the files you are changing and who was Cc:'d, and use that to create
a useful list of people to Cc:. You copied a lot of people, but I don't
see anyone who recently touched this file. The same is true for your other
'core' patches. In some cases you did not even copy the maintainer(s).
It might also make sense to add explicit "Cc:" entries, to inform people
that you expect them to provide feedback.

As it is, it will be all but impossible to get your patch series accepted,
simply because the people in position to approve the core changes don't
know about it.
