So I think all of these patches are ok, but you should probably add a
few more people explicitly to the cc.

Probably Rusty (because modpost) and MIchal (because kbuild). The
kernel mailing list is so high-volume and untargeted that it's usually
better as a "archival cc" than as a way to find people to comment and
merge the patches.
