... but if you do make a pull request, please don't open any more than
a single one. I initially thought you were asking whether you need to
make one commit or multiple commits. I would strongly prefer a single
commit as well. Opening multiple pull request would only add a lot of
burden to developers.

(What's important is not to make completely unrelated changes to
multiple ports in one commit or one pull request.)
