I'm new to git so I suspect that I don't understand the proper method for
patch submission.  But this is the problem that I see with your suggestion.
git send-email implies usage of git-format-patch.  But git-format-patch
creates a set of files one per commit.
However,  don't you want to submit the diff between the changed code and
the master, i.e. git diff master > patch?
