This patch is already common code. Though, there was some changes in arch/arm because of interdependency. Splitting more won't make more sense.

it's not a new problem. A patch may have a dependency on another patch who has dependency on another one... This would end up to be CCed on every patch and spam your inbox.

I usually provide a git repo with my patch series in the cover letter. So if you miss anything you can look to the code and found the relevant patch.

Anyway... I will CC next time

Sincerely yours,

Julien Grall
