I'm not sure I get what you mean. Their subject lines look alike, but
not exactly the same.

So this patch set adds a new feature to Xen network device, which is
called split event channels. The subject lines of two patches, one for
frontend and one for backend, speak for themselves.

No matter how I change the subject lines, they will probably still look
alike except for the leading "xen-netfront / xen-netback".  I can squash
them into one changeset if that better suits your workflow, but it is
better to leave them separate IMHO so that we can test them separately.

Advice welcomed.
