Yes, splitting sounds more reasonable, I would love to do that. One
question is I noticed Andrew had picked this into -mm tree, if I post a
new patchset including these two small patches, whether it's convenient
to drop the old one and get these two merged.

Sorry, I don't know very well how this works in mm maintaining.
