Ohad's message to which you replied had:

Cc: Ohad Ben-Cohen <>, Hari Kanigeri <>,
Benoit Cousson <>, Tony Lindgren <>,
Greg KH <>, Grant Likely <>,, Suman Anna <>

Yours has:

To: Ohad Ben-Cohen <>
Cc: Hari Kanigeri <>, Benoit Cousson <>,
Tony Lindgren <>, Greg KH <>,,
Grant Likely <>,,, Suman Anna <>,

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?
