Just to show how, here is what I did just now.

  (0) Store your 16-patch series and 5-patch series in a mbox;

  (1) Check where the tip of fa/vcs-svn topic is at.

      $ git log --oneline --first-parent master..pu | grep fa/
      2ce959b Merge branch 'fa/vcs-svn' into pu
      574ffe1 Merge branch 'fa/remote-svn' into pu

  (2) Check where the topic was based on.

      $ git log --oneline --first-parent master..2ce959b^2
      1385a48 Implement a remote helper for svn in C

  (3) Detach at the same base and apply the mbox from step (0).

      $ git checkout 1385a48^
      $ git am --whitespace=nowarn mbox

  (4) Format them (i.e. as the way you sent them, without my fixup)

      $ git format-patch --stdout master >./+fa-0

  (5) Format with my fixup

      $ git format-patch --stdout master..2ce959b^2 >./+fa-1

  (6) Compare them.  The differences are my fixups.

      $ diff -u ./+fa-0 ./+fa-1 | less

Patch #17 "vcs-svn: Add sha1 calculation to fast_export ..." was the
one with a sentence whose purpose was unclear to me.

By the time you see this message, the tip of "pu" may have been
updated with further updates, so please do not trust 2ce959b above.
