the second patch cannot be 'merged' until the first one land on
master.. or the second patch is reworked to not depend on the first
one (should the first one be abandonned for some reason)

Jenkins build each patches.. but it pull each patch with it's history.
jenkins check-out the commit related to a given patch, which means for
dependents patches the later pull the former too.

Note it is possible to push patch for master with 'topic' to visually
indicate that they are related see
