There is obviously a line to draw between things that we can do in the
same commit, and things that we should not. I believe adding a hash
file together with a bump is OK since anyway doing the bump would
change the hash file.

I'd say readability. Renaming patches is clearly separated from .mk
changes. In the case of your Samba 4.2 bump, the changes within the .mk
file are mixed between bump-related changes, and indentation-related
changes, and this is what bothers me.
