    This is not the correct way to submit patches for inclusion in the
    stable kernel tree. Please read Documentation/stable_kernel_rules.txt
    for how to do this properly.


    I'll not send this out for the other 6 patches that also do not follow
    the proper format, as I'm sure you would get bored reading them.
