What's wrong with:
#1 - These additional tests have the following failures which are
fixed in subsequent commits: ...
#2 - This commit fixes these unittest failures: ...
#3 - This commit fixes these unittest failures: ...
2 and 3 already do that. So if you are assuming they are all applied
together, then why summarize the whole series in patch 1?

Well, people are using them "in production" though you do need
additional support. I'd hope that is all outside the core DT code
But okay by me if not tagged for stable.

I think this is more inline with other makefiles. Though it's probably
all over the map.

Changing to this is probably not worth doing.
