Thanks for your reminder. I will fix the related comments in a v1 patchset.

Yes, the patchset should be squashed into one patch, however it will be
difficult to explain the purpose of these modifications, so I break them
into little pieces, and hoped that these little patches can explain the
reason why the modification is needed in a cleaner way. It also will
be fixed in v1 patch.
