Either use a [0/3] mail that describes the complete changeset or just send
each patch as a reply to the previous one. This way they are grouped together
in the mail programs. That keeps the inbox clean and the relationsship is

This is IMHO too much data for an in-kernel changelog. I would vote for
including this in your commit comments, then it will be available as git
comment and not inflate the kernel tree itself with text that's useless for
most users. This is really only of interest if someone tries to find out
something about the changes in this driver and then he's normally also
interested in the diffs itself.
