Ok, I see. Yeah, it is just how I organize my work. Rather solve the
patch dependency sudoku one time than two times.

When I maintain a subsystem I've thought that it is my responsibility to
always do that and not wait someone else to do it for me :-) That is the
responsibility part of the equation when you have the power to decide
what gets in.

Right now I have two failed merges in my queue that I plan to take care
of them next week.
