Thanks for the reply Otavio.

So if I want to send multiple patches (each patch is a separate email 
that includes both the kernel patch & a patch for linux-qoriq_3.12.bb), 
then each patch of linux-qoriq_3.12.bb will depend on any of my 
previously submitted patches, right?

In other words, the SRC_URI in the linux-qoriq_3.12.bb patch will show 
my prior kernel patch submissions regardless of whether they have been 
merged / approved.

Example: (assume that "configure-T1040-for-FMAN-3VL.patch" was 
previously submitted but not yet approved / merged) -

     file://Fix-CVE-2014-5471_CVE-2014-5472.patch \
     file://configure-T1040-for-FMAN-V3L.patch   \
     +file://remove-Altivec-from-T1040-64-bit-defconfig.patch \
SRCREV = "c29fe1a733308cbe592b3af054a97be1b91cf2dd"
