You should not need to concern yourself with patch ordering outside
of the realms of the set i.e. [PATCH 1/x], [PATCH 2/x], etc.

If you just send the whole patch set and you do not specify otherwise,
it will be applied, in order, as a set.

Sending subsystem patches without the correct maintainers as recipients
is bad form.  Many of us have filters on, so this tactic will seldom
work in any case.
