On the one hand I don't want to cause a lot of noise but  on the other having smaller independent commits (particularly if they hit a lot of files/modules) seems like a more sensible plan to me.

There's some extra churn in splitting it up, sure, but different modules are often maintained by different people so getting changes that span the entire JDK reviewed might actually take you longer.  YMMV. I can assist creating RFEs.
