SubjectRe: [PATCH net] net: phylink: fix link state on phy-connect
Oh, and lastly, please send patches to linux@armlinux.org.uk or the
address I use in the sign-offs - sending them to rmk@armlinux.org.uk
is for personal non-Linux mail only, and has resulted in _all_ of
these messages ending up in my spam folder.

Thanks.
