You are correct. The order isn't important.
It's only important in case the changes depend on each other.
It sounds like they don't in your example.
If they did depend on each other, then I think I suggested the
wrong order -- you'd want to commit the independent parts first
(likely these are for both master and current) and the
dependent parts afterwards (I'm assuming these would be for
the current branch only).

That's right, rebase does it automatically.
