You've submitted this in a manner which is very mixed up and difficult
for me to handle.

For the bug fixes, create a separate series that targets the 'net' tree.

Next, create another series with the new features that target 'net-next'.
Carefully and clearly indicate that the series depends upon the bug fix
one and I'll sort it out.
