That doesn't matter, all the info can be obtained from the SHA1 id, the
question is: do we have a mechanism in git (or hopefully we could add)
to record the patchset or series the patch belongs to, without people to
guess heuristically.

E.g. when we merged a series of patches:

  [PATCH 00/08]
  [PATCH 01/08]
  [PATCH 08/08]

How do we know this whole series after merged when only one of these
commits are known?
