Yes, it's good practice to sync related changes in individual commits,
rather than one big oslo sync.

An example from a previous sync I did in Cinder:

  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12409/ (cfg)
  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12411/ (zmq)
  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12410/ (notifier)
  https://review.openstack.org/#/c/12412/ (misc)

These were all proposed at the same time, but I split related notable
changes into their own commits and then had a "misc" sync for more
trivial stuff.
