Hey James,

I am not entirely sure what happend but it looks like you are using
Alpine mailer to send out the patches. The sad end result is that
all of the patches have the "DRM: Add VIA DRM driver" title instead
of the more appropiate title within the email.

Could you repost them with 'git send-email' please?

This link http://kernelnewbies.org/OPWfirstpatch
at the "Submit a patch" section has an excellent tutorial on how
to use different mailers. The "Setup your tools" has a nice
tutorial on .gitconfig setup. If you would like to use
me as test subject and send emails to me before the mailing list
please do.

I usually have this in my .gitconfig file:

[konrad at build-external ~]$ more .gitconfig
        name = Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
        email = konrad.wilk at oracle.com
        signingkey = F1DB09BF
        branch = true
        diff = true
        smtpserver = smtp.gmail.com
        smtpserverport = 587
        smtpencryption = tls
        smtpuser = ketuzsezr at gmail.com

and for sending emails to myself I do:

konrad at phenom:~/linux$ git format-patch --subject-prefix="v4" HEAD^^..

konrad at phenom:~/linux: git send-email --suppress-cc=all --to konrad at kernel.org --compose --annotate --subject "[PATCH v4] Safety harness for the block driver." *.patch

edit in vim the changes, look over all of the patches, and then send.

Lastly, is there a git tree with these patches so that one may
just in one swoop test them out?
