You and I have different preferences for reviewing changes like this ;-)

I prefer the one patch (I do think it is an improvement). It's all
basically the exact same change. Looking at 40 different patches is
much more work IMHO, then just looking at a single patch, and testing
it, then testing 40 different patches. That's a lot of compiling.

I usually stop reviewing after 10 patches of the same kind, as I run
out of time to review them.
