With regard to scrolling (full repaints) they make no difference,
which you likely suspected. These are my scroll-up-benchmark times for
one of my .org files:

Emacs 27: 2.6s

Emacs 28
No patches: 13.0s
First 2: 13.2s
All 3: 13.8s

In terms of just repainting when I move the point, applying the first
2 patches made a noticeable difference. It is still sluggish compared
to 27. I'm not sure I can tell a difference with the 3rd patch applied
as well. It seems similar or maybe slightly faster.
