I will appreciate that patches that are related are posted together, such that I don't have to manually track what comes before another. That makes it less of a pain for me to keep track of and we can keep the reviews together.

Yes, I know and I apologize - we should have a better flow. What do you
say that for windows like this, where we have a number of patches that
have dependencies that we post them in meaningful patchsets and point to
a branch where they are ordered, like in a PR? Then we can rebase and
propagate changes properly?

For this window, I'll rebase the rest of the patches in for-4.20/pblk on
top of your for-4.20/core, then we can propagate changes as they come.
