yes, this way you reduce some apply-burdon from Greg. Ideally,
you would combine all patches (one patch per checkpatch warning)
in a common thread like this:

git-format-patch --cover-letter --thread -s <first commit of your
patches>

This way you could add some comments (if any) to the cover letter
and just keep the plain checkpatch message in the other patches. This
has also the advantage that the maintainers only have to ack the "cover
letter".
