The intention from regulars like you I can read from the tone of the
message (or if you want to you can mention it in the log message).

If a clearer signal is really needed, perhaps we should say
something like:

    Send any patch that has not been reviewed on the list fist to
    the list and area experts (you can learn who they are by running
    "git blame" and "git shortlog" on the part of the system you are
    touching) for review.  Once the patch gains list consensus that
    it is a good change, and the maintainer hasn't picked it up
    (perhaps it fell through cracks), resend it to the maintainer
    with Cc: to the list.

We could phrase it more brutally:

    If it is the first time a particular patch is sent to the list, it
    almost always is not ready for inclusion.

but I do not think that is a good idea.
