Generally push the least controversial patches first so that if you
have to redo one patch, then the rest are already applied and don't need
to be changed.

I have no idea which patchset you are talking about so I can't comment.
Greg always (except if there is a mistake) applies things in first come
first serve order.  He doesn't sort them.

You've pushed a bunch of stuff.  I don't know which stuff has been
applied and which has not.  If no one replied to it and there isn't a
dire issue such as a compile failure or it doesn't apply then Greg is
likely to apply it.  He doesn't silently patches, so you will get an
email either way.
