For the record, I've following in my ~/.gitconfig:

tocmd ="`pwd`/scripts/ --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nol"
cccmd ="`pwd`/scripts/ --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nom"

and I've sent the patches with the following command:

git send-email \
--to netdev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx \
--to 'David S. Miller <davem@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'Andrew Lunn <andrew@xxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@xxxxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@xxxxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'Frank Rowand <frowand.list@xxxxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' \
--cc 'linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' \
--cc 'Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>' \
--cc 'Maxime Ripard <maxime.ripard@xxxxxxxxxxx>' \
--identity linux tmp/nvmem-fix-v2/000*

which resulted just in the following 4 bounces:

* nbd@xxxxxxxxxxx (no such recipient)
* ks.giri@xxxxxxxxxxx (no such recipient)
* vipul.pandya@xxxxxxxxxxx (no such recipient)

Your mail to 'linux-arm-kernel' with the subject

[PATCH net-next v2 1/4] net: ethernet: support of_get_mac_address new ERR_PTR error

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval. The reason
it is being held:

Too many recipients to the message

So maybe netdev have similar moderation stuff enabled, but doesn't send out
this notices back? I've "fixed" the issue with the following workaround:

git send-email \
--to netdev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx \
--in-reply-to '<1557177887-30446-1-git-send-email-ynezz@xxxxxxx>' \

That is, just using netdev as the sole recipient and then the patch has
appeared in the patchwork and in the mailing list archive as well.
