So there are fixes in there, which should go now. It's what I thought
too when looking at those and was about to suggest to send them
separately but that's fine - I can pick them out.

With such a huge patchset I don't think you need to ping or resend every
week but only after people have looked at it at least somewhat. But I'm
sure you can imagine people are busy as hell so looking at that takes
time so you'd need to be patient.

It might be even helpful if you could split it into more palatable
portions of maybe 10-ish patches each, if possible, and then send the
first portion, wait for review and only send the second portion after
the first has been applied, etc.

That would make life easier for everyone involved.

Yes, I think we all agree on that.

Thx.
