Please resend this email in the correct format: As you can see in my
email the text version of your patch is severely screwed up and nobody
wants to even try converting a HTML format to a proper patch again,
probably most people won't even receive an email that has a HTML part as
their spam filter are going to handle it as spam. git send-email will
take care of it for you if you configure it for your account.
You should also cc Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> as he's the
one who handles backlight patches at the moment.


Best regards,

Florian Tobias Schandinat
