I sent the full serie to Matthew Wilcox <willy@infradead.org> only, as he
wanted to help re-sending the full serie. Then I saw that only 6 patches
appeared in the linux-doc mailing list.

I can try to send the three pending patches in different stages (for example
one patch every 4 or 5 hours) to avoid blocking my email. I hope. Or I can
send the three pending patches only to the kernel-hardening mailing list
and you re-send to all the people involved. Or any other solution you
propose. It's up to you.
