The information here is not a replacement for actual commit messages in the
real patches, it is normally used to provide an overview about the series
as a whole and can also be used to documemt changes between iterations -
albeit for the latter I prefer when this is done per patch, where possible
(higher level changes may span multiple patches, so it can be fine to do
those in the cover letter).
