We usually don't apply patches directly to the hwe kernels, unless strictly
necessary. In this case it would be better to submit the patches hirsute/linux
and they will get applied automatically to focal/linux-hwe-5.11 on the next
We also suggest that for large series it would be better to review and apply
the patches if they are sent as a pull request.
Could you please re-send this series for hirsute/linux?
