In case of single-patch series submissions, the anatomy is simple: first
the email subject is commit message title prefixed with "[PATCH]" or
"[PATCH v_n_]" (in case of n-th iteration), then commit message and the
actual diff.

Regarding n-th iteration series, sometimes it is desirable to break the
threading so that the original thread (of previous iterations) doesn't
get too long, by sending the series as completely new thread. Some
contributors (including myself) prefer that way. In that case, the link
to previous iteration is provided to aid reviewers.
