Did you read only those 2 lines? :)

- Global binary patch affects all users.

- Partial binary patch affects users who use its function.

  ==> Partial binary patch is better for users than global binary patch.

I don't really understand your question here, but:

Binary patches generated from 2 DESTdIRs - yes.

"MK or USE" - I'm trying to realize that MK is better than USE, in that
MK doesn't change signature, meaning binary patch friendly.

If you create a binary patch of YP code in libc, how do you call it?
