  Sorry - the missing "v2" on patches 2-6 was a mistake. They should all be v2.

AIUI, the list's preference is to have things like this all in one
thread (vs. separate threads for package), but that kinda obfuscates
the patch numbering. The pattern I used was that you should be able to
apply these patches in order, but the trees/branches to which you'd
apply them will change as you go, as listed in the subject line tags.

To be explicit:
  Patch 1/2: linux-signed/cosmic
  Patch 3/4: linux-signed-hwe-edge/bionic
  Patch 5/6: linux-signed/xenial

Always happy to change my process to make it easier - just let me know
if you have suggestions :)
