I can now tell why I don't like to combine. While doing a revert (it's not
related to GPIO nor to pin control), it appears that I reverted extra bits
as merge conflict resolution. This is per se is not an issue, but when
I tried to find and reapply that missed piece I can't, because the patch
is combined and Git simply ignores to have
`git cherry-pick _something in the past_` done.

But again, up to maintainers.
