I see that fix patches are no longer folded into the guilty patch
and it makes me a bit worried about kernel bisectability (on which
many people depend on for hunting regressions)...

Random example (amongst many others) of what I mean:

There is also a _ton_ of build fixes which could have been easily
folded into guilty patches.

Could you please consider adding this additional step into your
development process before push to Linus?
