Ugh, no - don't do this.  It's just confusing.  Patch series numbering
is used for ordering within a posting of a patch series, the fact that
a given patch might have previously been posted along with some others
isn't relevant if you send it out again in a different form.  People
will hopefully expect to see the rest of the series so they can check
for interdependencies and so on, if the subject says there are 9 patches
in what you're posting then there should be 9 patches.

Similarly threading individual modifications to patches into the middle
of prior postings makes it hard to track what's going on if things
aren't applied - "I want version 1 of this patch, version 2 of that one"
and so on gets hard to follow especially if there's a thread around them.
You get problems like some revisions getting missed in the middle of the
