Aren't we already treating them differently on an ad-hoc basis? Several
committers fast-track such patches through the process. We could mark
them differently in the CF app, but I'm not sure what we'd want to
achieve by doing that. Such small patches are frequently enough
buggy. Committers can most of the time can easily polish them up, but
that still takes time; so I think tests/reviews of those are still

So the only real difference I see an explicit difference would make is
making it easier to spot such patches when looking for an easy thing to
commit, and to make life for the commitfest manager easier. Not sure if
such a labeling would save more time than doing the labeling itself
would cost.
