Sorry with the amount of things incoming this does not fly well. It it better to 
resubmit as "[SRU K/J v2] ...". The branch is not necessary. More important here 
are the target kernel names and if that is omitted it is the primary "linux" source.
jammy:linux-hwe-5.17 is only needed separately because it has no parent (but is 
the parent of all 5.17 based kernels). Any other HWE kernels normally are 
derived from a primary kernel. So they inherit the changes automatically.
