This doesn't explain anything.  After reading the patches, I could see 
that patches 2-5 are needed in order to work with patch 1, but I don't 
know why patch 1 was needed in the first place.  It looks like patch 1 
forces callers to add an extra argument containing information that is 
already available, so why is the extra argument needed?

In any case, this is the sort of the thing you should explain to people
instead of forcing them to figure it out for themselves.
