Is it normal that Herbert, as the crypto maintainer, is not Cc'ed on
those patches?

I think those two patches should have come first in the series, to make
it clear that they are the two fixes that are important to merge for
the 4.8 release cycle.

Those 5 other patches (the four from me and the last one from you) are
more cleanups/improvements, which can wait the 4.9 release cycle.
