SubjectRe: [git patches] libata updates, GPG signed (but see admin notes)

If this approach is used then it would be nice to have a .gitconfig
switch to require trusted pulls by default: to not allow doing
non-signed or untrusted pulls accidentally, or for Git to warn in a
visible, hard to miss way if there's a non-signed pull.

This adds social uncertainty (and an element of a silent alarm) to a
realistic attack: the attacker wouldnt know exactly how the puller
checks signed pull requests, it's kept private.

Thanks,

Ingo
