    I think you misunderstood my comment. What I meant to say was that there is
    _no way_ you can compile a filesystem that has only dentry ops but not
    superblock ops - this would happen if you tried to bisect and you landed
    half way in the series of commits for the filesystem. For the _initial_
    commit one cset makes sense. For subsequent fixes one commit per fix is the
    only logical thing to do.
