I make a difference between style fixes and refactorings. I *support* splitting large commits in many small logical revisions. A recent good example of this are Alexis' patches sequences, some of them tweaking a single function parameter or inlining a function. These make sense at review level, can be bisected and so forth. I have no real interest in style fixes, the less the better. Sure, once the code is committed, it's better to fix style problems as soon as possible, but I really prefer to commit clean code, which is not that hard to achieve (compared to committing bug-free code :-)).
