Zhenhua and Otavio,

Please guide me on how I should submit multiple kernel patches for 
linux-qoriq that also require multiple SRC_URI line additions to the 
same linux-qoriq_3.12.bb file in the meta-fsl-ppc layer.

I have a few different kernel patches that I want to submit related to 
the T1040 (e.g., remove Altivec flag).  I'm ready to send a few now, and 
I expect to have one or two each week going forward.

Each patch addresses one problem and is self contained in its own kernel 
.patch file.

Should I send these as one email that contains multiple kernel patches 
plus a single patch to linux-qoriq_3.12.bb to include the SRC_URI 

Or maybe I should send each kernel patch out separately in its own email 
(like I have already done), wait for comments, and then combine them 
into one email patch submission that then bundles the 
linux-qoriq_3.12.bb patch.

Please let me know what you would like to see.
