+1 (although I already reviewed it)

The patch should be formatted a bit different. I agree that if combined
with first patch and proper settings (-M10% -C10%, optionally also
experiment with -B although here it looks not needed).

I reviewed the diff side-by-sie and there were differences (labels)
tricky to spot. If you generate the patch correctly, not much of review
is needed...
