CC'ing individual maintainers on entire patch sets
that span multiple subsystems doesn't scale.

Given that lore.kernel.org now stores all emails
sent to lkml, it's a reasonable thing to add a
reference to the cover letter below the --- line
to make it easier for individual recipients of
patches in a series to find the entire patch set.

i.e. Send emails with something like:

Subject: [PATCH N/M] foo: bar

commit message

Signed-off-by: J. Random Developer <address@...ain.tld>
---

Link: https://lore.kernel.org/r/<message_id_of_cover_letter>

[patch]

A trivial script to insert these links if all patches
in a series are stored in a separate directory:

$ bash insert_cover_letter_link.bash <patch_directory>

---
$ cat insert_cover_letter_link.bash
#!/bin/bash

find $@ -name "*.patch" | sort | \
    while read file ; do

	echo "File: <$file>"
	if [[ $(basename $file) =~ ^0000- ]] ; then
	    message_id=$(grep '^Message-Id: <' $file)
	    if [ $? -ne 0 ] ; then
		echo "Message_Id not found"
		exit 1
	    fi
	    message_id=$(echo $message_id | \
			     sed -r -e 's/^Message-Id:\s*<//' -e 's/>\s*$//')
	    separator="-- "
	    echo "Message_Id: <$message_id>"
	else
	    separator="---"
	fi
	
	if [[ "$message_id" == "" ]] ; then
	    echo "Patch series cover letter Message_Id not found"
	    exit 1
	fi

	perl -n -i -e "if (\$_ =~ /^$separator$/) { print; print \"\\n\"; print \"Link: https://lore.kernel.org/r/\" . '$message_id' . \"\\n\"; print \"\\n\"; } else { print; }" $file

    done

exit 0
