If you think the lists are enough to review changes include only
the lists, but don't add CCs for individual patches, that's what
I usually do for cleanups that touch a lot of drivers, but don't
really change actual logic in ever little driver touched.

I'm fine with not being Cced at all if there isn't anything requiring
my urgent personal attention.  It's up to you whom you want to Cc,
but my preference is generally for rather less than more people, and
rather more than less mailing lists.

But the important bit is to Cc a person or mailinglist either on
all patches or on none, otherwise a good review isn't possible.
