    That's disappointing (the attachments). Why was this requested?

    See Documentation/CodingStyle, section 7:

    "No MIME, no links, no compression, no attachments. Just plain text."


    It also causes breakage in other people's patch merging/testing.
    E.g., I cannot save any one of these emails as I can with other patches
    and get a useful patch file. Instead, the saved file contains lines like
    this (below) and each patch 2 times (inline and attachment).

    --------------060706070408040606010200
    Content-Type: text/plain;
    name="kbuild-update-DocBook-Makefile-in-preperation-for-mo.patch"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
    Content-Disposition: attachment;
    filename="kbuild-update-DocBook-Makefile-in-preperation-for-mo.patch"
