If you have, say, 10 patches and each requires a week to get approved
and committed,
then you will spend 70 days on the whole feature.
Instead, you can create a patch series in maybe a week or two, and then
it may require a couple of weeks for review as a whole.
Thus, total development time may be cut in half or more.

They do -- a whole lot of features.
