I see, it looks like the condensed version of the branch.  I really
prefer you'd keep the patches incremental: its much easier to review the
incremental changes rather than folding updates into the
already-reviewed base patches.  Folding down is a late-stage process for
submission, and not something that should be done prematurely.
