Parts of this should conflict with a patch in -mm from a few weeks ago.
then I check and don't see it there.... hrm, wonder what happened to it.

-Separate each logical change into its own patch.
+Separate each _logical changes_ into its own patch.
or drop "each" and change "its own patch"
to "a single patch file."

On the other hand, if you make a single change to numerous files,
-group those changes into a single patch. Thus a single logical change
-is contained within a single patch.
+group those changes into a single patch. Thus single logical changes
+are contained within a single patch.

It's better in the original form.

+Do not send more than 15 patches at once to the vger mailing lists!!!

Only in one place, please.
