Yeah, sorry - I misremembered the specific reason they were related when
I replied to you.

No, I understand that the patch sets are related, like I say I had
misremembered the relation when replying to you.

I am, what I'm asking is that people don't send new patch sets in reply
to old ones even if they are related as while the thought is good in
that case the software tends not to do a great job with it.  Either just
mentioning things in the cover letter or resending the previous stuff as
part of a new, combined series tends to work better.
