We'll be going through the patches and reviewing/committing them
before too long. RBTools was feature-frozen, so we didn't want to add
new code that needed a lot of testing or could lead to regressions.

I want to hold off for now on the patchset option because we might
have a SoC student  working on a new, better way of doing patchsets in
Review Board. We might need to repurpose or remove that flag with this
support, which would just be confusing to those who are used to it
working a certain way. Will know more once we've made final decisions
on the SoC proposals.
