Right, this is key - the top level problem with most of this patch set
is that it's hard to understand what the changes are intended to do or
why.  It's really important that people reading the changes be able to
understand what's going on, especially if technical problems have been
found since that tends to make people look more closely.  Part of this
is about splitting the changes out so that each patch does one thing
(which makes it easier to understand them) and part of it is about
explaining those changes clearly.
