Two separate patches, or even two chains of separate patches, will
make reviewing and more importantly (hopefully temporary) backouts
easier. It will also reduce the number of merge conflicts, which are
still likely to be substantial.

There's no benefit at all to all of this being done in one patch, and
substantial costs. Doing the conversion by sections seems like the way

Doing both around the same time (maybe as dependant patches) seems reasonable
