The first fix(es) didn't work with the issue reported in [2], which
was in turn very similar to that in [1]. Since I didn't know why, I
couldn't be sure that the first fix was correct and did not introduce
other issues.

Nope. I proposed the full series in this thread, the day after the
full fix was confirmed to work. I didn't propose any partial series
patch before, for the above reason.

there are other rules for these tags, I'm sorry but I'm not aware of

improvements made along the way.

Submitting a V2.
