No, we should not mix the two methods, that just leads to circular dependencies.

How many more patches do you have that need to get merged?

If it's only a few, I'd suggest merging them first before we consider a
broader change. If the problem is very common, we may want to
think about alternative approaches first, and then change everything
at once.
