Just to be clear, this is not about me picking up any patches
separately. I was instead making sure git-bisect works correctly, as it
can randomly choose to test any commit in the tree. But based on your
description everything seems to be in order in this patchset and bisect
will work correctly.

git-bisect is an important tool for me when I'm searching the root cause
for ath11k regressions, that's why I'm so careful to make sure it works.
