Much better.


Do you really think I can apply a patch that looks like this above? I
have to edit the text of the email before I apply it.

Now I'm a bit grumpy about this at the moment as Linus yelled at me for
patches where I missed this on a few for the 3.2 merge window, so I'm
going to push back on people now very hard.

Please send this in a format that I can run 'git am' on the email you
send me. I could not do that here, otherwise we would end up with a
duplicate header in the changelog message.

Yes, it makes you do a bit more work, but when you are handling
thousands of patches like me, you scale better than I do :)

Actually, it's just making you do it properly, along with everyone else,
which is a good thing, right?
