I would prefer that you keep rightful authors of patches instead of
changing the style a bit and committing in your own name.
This isn't respectful of contributors and seems to be a recurring issue
with you.

If you want to change the style, you can discuss it with the authors,
and amend the commit before pushing instead of doing that.

I would prefer that you revert the commit, and do it properly (which
would be good as it would also be explained in the development history).

Yes, but that's also partly due to the style, these are no
“fallthrough” cases, there are early returns, and it's easier to read
them as such instead of putting them into if-then-else blocks

Yeah, but it clearly shows an unexpected server-side early connection
close otherwise, which is what led me to find the problem!
