    Then why, as the original driver authour and current maintainer
    do I not get told about this? This isn't the first time I've come
    to apply this sort of thing and find that someone else has slipped
    in an 'trivial' change such as whitespace that breaks an entire
    patch series.

    Do people not bother to check who wrote the driver or who is the
    current maintainer before doing these things?
