...  but these are not as readily obvious, at least to me.  I do see a pattern
but the differences seemed subtle enough that it would take a while to ensure

I agree, that this should be follow on patches.  I still need to fix the
bisect-ability and I don't want to bog down 0-day with a longer series.
