This one:

It's a bit confusing when patches are being ignored for more than two
months:

https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1040099/
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1040100/
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1040098/

Certainly, Richard Weinberger replied to this one. But I couldn't
find a tree to which this patch was applied, in case it actually
was.

It's a common practice for maintainers to reply saying that a patch
has been finally applied, and in most cases they also explicitly
mention the tree and branch to which it was applied. All this info
is really helpful for people working all over the tree.

I'm only taking this type of patches in my tree when they are being
ignored for a considerable amount of time and even after pinging the
maintainers.

Thanks
