They are, but they are completely separate fixes, and not described in the changelog.

Ideally I'd say they should be a separate testable commit, but at least it
should be mentioned in the changelog (and patch summary).

Sorry, compound commits with unrelated changes are my pet peeve; they make bisecting
harder, and make it harder to find fixes when looking back over git history.
