Yeah, a thumb of rule is to have around 10-12 patches per patchset. Then
it's still pretty easy to review them and get them accepted. Of course
it's not a hard rule, for smaller patches (like here) having more than
12 is still doable. An also the opposite, with big patches even 10
patches is too much. But 50 patches is just pure pain for the reviewers :)
