SubjectRe: Line endings now altered when saving kernel patches via gmail

SMTP mails always use CR/LF line endings in the body. If the older
gmail did not show them in the source view, this was a bug, which
has now been fixed.

Tools like "git am" automatically convert line endings from mail
to Unix. If your tools don't handle this, you'll have to convert
the files manually after saving them.
