We have tried to isolate most of the functional changes and made them part of the separate patches as fit. I think, we can include a bit of description in commit message to cover it in this patch. Please let me know if you think otherwise.

I believe it is good to separate code refactoring into different patch
if possible, instead of covering this in commit log.

This makes functional changes easy to find in the future. In this patch
hard to spot them.
