Next time you may want to use "git format-patch --cover" which
generates for you a cover letter that has a list of the patches.

So, I have applied:

c85b3fca39e9a3361a3202037010211566d152fd thttpd: add systemd service file
1c74c8431341006d063f40b7436cc529d4378ae2 wpa_supplicant: install systemd service files
af17811662595ad1db0a992a3a7446c79d40d578 kodi: move systemd service file to /usr/lib
b054815ee5fd023d7123f35633688eb56c9514d9 dhcp: move systemd service file to /usr/lib
1dd088ca16f4daacad33b8e7c218dc9055c47c97 libiio: move systemd service file to /usr/lib

ad56242ae3ef6997b7c30b940065ae8f1ba85978 openvmtools: move systemd service to /usr/lib
7afccf677621c557d0db100117833b1dfdf4d071 ntp: move systemd service file to /usr/lib
c986d663d77ad50c59f3191d49c51cb4da4d3198 lighttpd: use upstream systemd service file

I have left on the side:

 [v2,04/25] psplash: move systemd service files to /usr/lib
 [v2,09/25] rsyslog: fix systemd service installation
 [v2,23/25] avahi: systemd cleanups

because I made some comments on them.

And I have also left on the side all the patches moving the udev rules
from /lib/udev to /usr/lib/udev because for now, I'm not sure to
understand the motivation behind this change, which seems a bit
pointless to me at first sight.

For systemd, I do understand the idea of having .service files
themselves in /usr and only the symlinks to enable the services
in /etc. But for udev, I'm not sure.

Opinions from others are welcome.
