It's definitely ok to have multiple patches needed to address a single
perceived issue.

A commit is not about what you're fixing but what you're changing. And
the fact that you have tha bullet list in the first place proves that
you have multiple logical changes in your patch.

And even then, your commit log mentions that you're fixing multiple
issues (without explaining them).

Your commit log says that you remove atomic_disable. Why would you
remove it, to add it back, to remove it again?
