You need to not use commit notes here. That's for things that you want
to be a note in the email, but not end up in the commit log.

No, you shouldn't have to. The reason this failed to be removed is
that you capitalized the 'C' in changes, and it didn't see it.

Also, these tags are parsed and included as notes. You don't want to
put these in a commit notes tag. That's only needed for other random
commit notes.

Do the series. Also, you should have the dependency patch first, and
the dependent patch second (swap them around).

Go ahead and use v4. So use:

Series-version: 4

The fact that this is in the notes means that you put it under
"Commit-notes:" ... "END"
