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).

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: attachment;

*** Remember to use Documentation/SubmitChecklist when testing your code ***
