Sad to say, I have not been paying any significant attention to this
patch series. The major points I have gleaned are that these are all
relatively small optimizations, and that by default the patches do not
change existing behavior (they are opt-in).

So at first glance there's no pressing reason not to apply them. But
admittedly, this viewpoint ignores the larger picture.
