the patches clean the code. So why *PLONK*?

Come on, you are basically saying that you are not willing to learn and
prefer wasting time by not using the tools correctly (`git show`) and by
even making commits worse and spending time on editing them instead of
doing `git am` three times and `git push`.

I even told you the commands and spend my time fixing errors introduced
with your commits. Believe me that such review and clean up work is not
very entertaining and satisfying either. Taking time to explain stuff to
others too.
