You need to *commit* the approved patches to master, and then send a
series that applies to current master with the approved patches included.
If a patch can't be committed because it depends on an earlier unapproved
patch (or because the approval was explicitly conditional on a whole
series going in at once), then it's appropriate still to include it in the
series, but to state explicitly that it's been approved and is unchanged
from the approved version (if that's the case).
