I think the first and last hunks will be difficult to untangle, which
is part of what I expect you're asking for. The commit message has
three sections, which can be broken in to three patches easily, but two
of the patches would be fairly trivial (one is the second hunk and the
other is changing an error string to be more descriptive. Can you
clarify that I've understood you correctly and if not, give more detail
in what you're looking for?
