I agree with you, but last time I tried a large patch for fixing this
I've been told to split the patches for each maintainer
you noticed it's a pain to apply them and it's even more for splitting
in a per maintainer basis since it touches a lot of files.
Randy, Jason: as you see maybe the split approach was not a good one.
I'am all for applying this once, as Ingo said.
