Then change the other entry.

And if you really like your initials, you should probably change
the email address format you're using right now and probably the
mechanism you use to send your patches and acks as well.

Look at the name I'm replying to: (no quotes)
"James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@HansenPartnership.com>"

Right now, if somebody uses get_maintainers.pl on a patch for a
file in drivers/scsi, git will find your signoffs as

(no quotes)
"James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@HansenPartnership.com>"

and the scripts/get_maintainers.pl will use MAINTAINERS entry of

(with quotes)
"James E.J. Bottomley <James.Bottomley@HansenPartnership.com>"

You'll be cc'd twice and .mailmap doesn't have enough information
to select your preferred email address.

cheers, Joe
