Wrong series name applied to a patch series

As you can see below:

The series name is wrongly set to the title of the patch [01/30]:
riscv: hw: Remove superfluous "linux, phandle" property

But the series name should really be set to the tile of the cover
letter's [00/30]:
riscv: sifive_u: Improve the emulation fidelity of sifive_u machine

See the QEMU mailing list archive for the above series:

A similar issue happened with v4 of the same patch series.

This is the patch [01/28] and its series name is set to the patch name itself

This is the reset of the v4 patch series, and the series name is set
to the cover letter [00/28].
However they all belong to the same patch series.

So the parsing logic of patchwork has something wrong.

For the latter case, what I might guess is happening is that [01/28]
hit the list before [00/28], so there was no series to append to.

But even if that's the case, I think patchwork has all the information
and can still correct the mistake later when it sees all other
message's "In-Reply-To"s are referring to the same cover letter and
should group them into one series.
