No, I am POSITIVE that this is a bad idea in this case. The changes are
logically independent but the implementation makes them interdependent.
The DCE patches for instance assume that there are no more
V_MUST_DEFs, the DSE changes use the new multi-operand VOPs. The
implementation of push/pop also uses the new VOPs.
Nevertheless, I of course do not have any authority to dictate you what
should or should not be done. If you believe that the effort needed to
create separate patches overweights the advantages, it is up to you to
decide (or if you are unsure, perhaps asking global maintainers for
their opinion would be a good idea).
It is a lot more efficient for me to standby the whole set of changes in
case anything goes wrong. The only reason why I haven't checked it in
yet, was because of your complaint. I have received no other complaints.
I have already bootstrapped the patch on x86, x86-64, ia64 and ppc64,
build SPEC2000 and build all the test-cases in my sandbox.
