I would suggest that before pushing, you reorder the patches so that
'make check' passes for every stage of the patch series.  This makes
patch bisection easier in the future (if we are trying to hunt down a
regression, it's better if every commit builds independently).
Admittedly, it can look a bit odd seeing the commit that fixes the bug
before the commit that introduces the test, even though they were
developed in the opposite order, but you get used to it.  And 'git
rebase -i' makes it so easy to do.
