Thanks a lot, Sean, especially for sharing the commit history.

And I just sent out a patch to fix it.

One question is about the process of small cleanup patches like
this: would it be better off to include the cleanup patches as
part of a larger submission, or is it OK to be sent seperately?

Previously I submitted some small patches(e.g. [1] & [2]) but
have not received any reply. So I am just wondering, maybe those
patches are too trivial and sometimes time-wasting for the reviewers?

Any suggestion? Thanks!
