No, there is a reason why we have written rules on how patches should
be submitted. Everyone in the kernel community is expected to optimize
their workflow according to these rules to make life easier for people
reviewing and merging the patches.

As you said now someone has to fix this using an editor and that is an
error prone process. Besides, why it would take 10 minutes to generate
a proper patch-set? git is very good on this regard (i.e: git commit
---fixup && git rebase -i && git format-patch && git send-email).

I won't argue anymore but I find very sad that people who have been in
the kernel community for years don't follow the basic rules we have
documented it. So I wonder why we have the documentation in the first
place and how can we expect newcomers to follow if even experienced
kernel hackers don't.
