Note, it is critical that every change log stands on its own. You do
not need to Cc the entire patch set to everyone. Each patch should have
enough information in it to know exactly what the patch does.

It's OK if each change log has duplicate information from other
patches. The important part is that one should be able to look at the
change log of a specific patch and understand exactly what the patch is

This is because 5 years from now, if someone does a git blame and comes
up with this commit, they wont have access to the patch series. All
they will have is this single commit log to explain why these changes
were done.

If a change log depends on other commits for context, it is
