One thing I would ask is that the subsequent submissions do not thread
onto the previous submission.

It may seem a good idea (people claim that it allows the previous reviews
to be trivially found) but these people forget an important side effect
from this behaviour - when looking at the message index in a threaded
mail reader (like mutt), each reply to a thread moves the subject line
by three characters to the right.  What this means is that after about
five or six iterations of the submission, there is no longer any subject
line visible.

Moreover, it means that with lesser iterations, it becomes much more
difficult to see /any/ of the review thread structure.

I would suggest that if you do want to "connect" the subsequent
submissions, please use the same reference message for each submission.
In other words, rather than:

v1 0/2
+-> v1 1/2
+-> v1 2/2
+-> v2 0/2
    +-> v2 1/2
    +-> v2 2/2
        +-> v3 0/2
            +-> v3 1/2
            +-> v3 2/2

This is done instead:

v1 0/2
+-> v1 1/2
+-> v1 2/2
+-> v2 0/2
|   +-> v2 1/2
|   +-> v2 2/2
+-> v3 0/2
|   +-> v3 1/2
|   +-> v3 2/2

which is a compromise between threading the messages together, and
keeping stopping the thread pushing the subject line completely off
the right hand side of the screen.

In this case, I'd suggest a reference of:
  1415793593-5075-1-git-send-email-andy.yan at rock-chips.com

which is the v8 covering message which started this big thread.
