I understand what a cover letter is.

I don't normally see cover letters required for small patchsets like
this in other trees.  The commit messages should explain in detail what
is being changed as the cover letters are not committed to the kernel. 
I only add cover letters when the patchsets are significant, per the
Documentation/ you eluded to.

But if you require this for the linux net tree then I can add them as I
move forward it is not a problem either way.
