That was not a good choice.

That's fine. Then there should have been 2 patches in the set. But
then to attach 2 unrelated patches to the set is not fine. They
should have either been submitted as part of the set i.e. 0/4 or
completely separately.

Yes, or together would have also been fine. The only think that is
not okay is to submit a set of 2 patches, then to "bolt-on" another
2 for some reason.
