Thousands of other kernel developers get it right and manage to submit
clean patches, so i think you are not trying very hard to actually solve
this problem - and your flippant and obtrusive answers do not make it
very easy to work with you as a contributor.

You've put your signoff in there and Vegard has tested it. The general
principle on lkml is that patches can be marked as do-not-apply-yet by
adding something like this:

Not-Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <>

or by not adding a SOB line at all. In that case i either ask people for
the SOB or apply them at my own risk.
