I don't think it matters where you start - but as Roland says, you'll need
to send individual logical fixes, each with its own rationale for what the
patch does. (Anything that purely affects !_LIBC code is of course easier
to review since it's obvious it can't break glibc, but even there we might
want a different approach that means no _LIBC conditional is needed at
all, for example.)
