Yes, I can. Would it be alright if that was part of the v2 itself (since it's similar changes)?
Or would I have to split them up into 2 different patches and send it as a 2-patch series
(since the changes made are in different functions)?

Noted. I'll have this fixed in the v2.

Noted.

Thank you for your time.

Thanks,
