Its certainly preferable to a single giant patch. I personally don't
have a problem with 60+ patches. 

I haven't looked at the so I don't know how much dependency there is
between them.  It might be a little less overwhelming if they were
submitted 10 or 15 one day. Then a similar amount the next day or 12
hours later, and so on until they are all submitted.  Perhaps submitting
them in clumps which are related somehow, maybe functional area of the
compiler/likely to be reviewed by the same maintainer would be a good
idea. It might (maybe, maybe not :-) get faster attention so a
maintainer doesn't have to paw through all of them to see if there is
anything relevant to their component(s).

It must have been a pain to organize that many separate patches :-) I
thought I was doing well when I submitted the new out-of-ssa as 5
patches! :-)
