Does it bisect cleanly?

Quite frankly, for something fairly trivial like this where the upside
is mainly "slightly faster compile" (and hey, perhaps cleaner source
tree), the downsides needs to be minimized. And just looking at the
shortlog makes me go: this will be a bisection disaster - people will
look for bugs, bisect will go into this series, and things won't
compile.

But maybe it's ordered so that the actual module.h split comes last,
exactly so that it would be safe and bisectable? I just don't know,
and I'd like to know before I pull..
