And git send-email does that for you if you give it all the patches to
send to... If you give it each patch individually, they will come as
individual units

FWIW, my workflow is

$ git format-patch .... -o <some_dir>
<check the patches, add cover letter details etc>
$ git send-email <some_dir>

That ensures the In-Reply-To is set for subsequent patches and the log
will also tell you that
