For what it is worth, I'm not removing any patches from my series file
until they explicitly conflict and/or become redundant. If a maintainer
says they are adding the patch, I add a comment in the series file, but
I don't remove them until I see them come into next via another branch,
and/or sfr reports a conflict/redundancy.
