Blocking the whole series is itself not ideal since it means the whole
large series keeps on getting resent for minor changes in individual
patches where it's only a small number of leaf patches that have issues,
with a lot of these serieses the reason they're bundled together is that
there's some constants being added in one of the early patches that gets
used everywhere else, not that there's a really a particularly strong
relationship.

You had been sharing pull requests for the common bits in the past which
had resolved the dependency issues?

Like I say we've got active work that ends up doing subsystem wide
interface changes on a fairly frequent basis which then creates issues
if a new user pops up that's still trying to use the old API. Often
it's fine but coordinating near the time is safer than just acking with
a potentially long lead time on things actually going through.
