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.

I am with the patchset posted, that should have the order. I just wanted 
to mention it. One thing that would be good, if you do have patches you 
have upstream, feel free to push them in smaller increments, so we can 
pull them in as we go. Only a nitpick, it is obviously up to you guys 
how you want to do it :)
