It depends what you mean. If there were problems with a version of a
patch you sent, then you "re-roll", which means you re-send the patch
in its entirety as if it's brand new (not building on the problematic
previous version). You'd also indicate the attempt number in the
subject; for instance "[PATCH v2]" for the second attempt.

If you're working on some functionality that is built up over a series
steps, then you would send all those patches as a "patch series", in
which each patch in the series builds upon the patch or patches
preceding it in the series.

I'm not quite sure what you mean.
