Ujjwal, your setup to send out the patch series created three unrelated
emails rather than the default way, i.e., to have one cover letter
and the patches in reply to the cover letter.
You can see the difference here:
The presentation of your patch series looks different than the other
patch series on the list. Use the linux-kernel-mentees list for testing
For this version of the patch series, I guess it is okay; but this set up
right for the next patch series.

I hit an unrelated issue on next-20201002 that make tools/clean fails.
Other than that, this is all good.

Okay, I did that.

I can confirm that these errors are reported on next-20201002.

With this first patch, I could then successfully do:
make allmodconfig && make
So far, so good. I did check the first patch.
