Ohad's message to which you replied had:

To: linux-omap@vger.kernel.org, linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org,
linux-arm-kernel@lists.infradead.org
Cc: Ohad Ben-Cohen <ohad@wizery.com>, Hari Kanigeri <h-kanigeri2@ti.com>,

Yours has:

akpm@linux-foundation.org, Suman Anna <s-anna@ti.com>,
mattw@codeaurora.orgmattw, linux-arm-kernel@lists.infradead.org

which includes an invalid address "mattw@codeaurora.orgmattw". Is there
a reason why you're excluding the linux-omap list from your message and
subsequent discussion?
