In other words, Mattheiu pointed out two examples of breakages and they were the only mistakes after you re-reviewed the mechanical changes, and there is no more? - Cleaning up is a good thing, but - Mechanical and mindless conversion is always error-prone, and - Eyeballing each and every change is required, but - Nobody has time or energy to go through 140+ patches in one go, with enough concentration necessary to do so without making mistakes (this applies to yourself, too---producing mechanical replacement is a no-cost thing, finding mistakes in mechanical replacement takes real effort). That is why we strongly discourage people from such a whole-tree clean-up just for the sake of clean-up and nothing else, and instead encourage them to clean-up as a preparatory step for real work on the files involved. Sure, it would not give us as wide a coverage as a mechanical whole-tree replacement in one-go, but that is the only practical way to avoid mistakes. If it were "four patches per every Monday" kind of trickle, we might be able to spend some review bandwidth while reviewing other patches, though. So.... I am not very enthused about reviewing and applying these patches in their current form.
