No, this buys us nothing, since those patches were dependent upon each
other and you cannot bisect there anyway (since it just won't work in the
middle of the series). So we would not be worse off if it had been just one
big commit. It was even easier to review when it was one big patch.

So i'm still saying that it buys us nothing.
