For the record, I've following in my ~/.gitconfig:

    tocmd ="`pwd`/scripts/ --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nol"
    cccmd ="`pwd`/scripts/ --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nom"

and I've sent the patches with the following command:

 git send-email \
	--to netdev at \
	--to 'David S. Miller <davem at>' \
	--cc 'Andrew Lunn <andrew at>' \
	--cc 'Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli at>' \
	--cc 'Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1 at>' \
	--cc 'Frank Rowand <frowand.list at>' \
	--cc 'devel at' \
	--cc 'linux-kernel at' \
	--cc 'Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh at>' \
	--cc 'Maxime Ripard <maxime.ripard at>' \
	--identity linux tmp/nvmem-fix-v2/000*

which resulted just in the following 4 bounces:

 * nbd at (no such recipient)
 * ks.giri at (no such recipient)
 * vipul.pandya at (no such recipient)

 Your mail to 'linux-arm-kernel' with the subject

    [PATCH net-next v2 1/4] net: ethernet: support of_get_mac_address new ERR_PTR error

 Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.  The reason
 it is being held:

    Too many recipients to the message

So maybe netdev have similar moderation stuff enabled, but doesn't send out
this notices back? I've "fixed" the issue with the following workaround:

 git send-email \
 	--to netdev at \
	--in-reply-to '<1557177887-30446-1-git-send-email-ynezz at>' \

That is, just using netdev as the sole recipient and then the patch has
appeared in the patchwork and in the mailing list archive as well.
