Well, I thought one logical change per changeset is the favourite way to
go. And as the people Cc:d are different I think most people prefer it
this way.

Probably, the big pro after my patch is that modpost can warn about
this. Actually this applies to all (initially) over 50 patches in this
series. If you take my patches, squash them together and fix all called
functions, I'm happy, too.

If you don't I might come back to this and do it myself.
