I have looked at the possibility of separating the controversial part from the 
rest of the change, but it does not look feasible.
I would need to write a driver to fill the gap (well a hack driver for the 
time of one commit), and even in that way the patch which adds the 
'controversial' bit is going to contain quite a bit of code, since I need to 
rework other parts of the driver.
I think the improved commit message contains enough information on the change.
