SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 2/5] drm/stm: dsi: Adjust dw_mipi_dsi_probe and remove
Hi Nickey,

Other reviews have suggested this might be described as "SoC glue
driver", not "parent driver". Also, the subject probably should include
either "mipi" or "dw-mipi-dsi".

So, you've split my patch in 2 and called it your own (see patch 1,
which still has the 'From' (i.e., author) line as "Nickey Yang", not
"Brian Norris"). You need to keep the author accurate. (It's good to add
an additional 'Signed-off-by' of your own, but keep the author.)

When developing in your local git tree, make sure that the 'Author' line
is accurate in 'git log'. Then 'git format-patch + git send-email' will
format things correctly, such that your email headers will say "From:
Nickey Yang", but then git-send-email will make sure there's an
additional line within the body of the email to attribute the author.

For example, see how this patch was sent by Doug in a later series, but has my
authorship:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9188419/

The email header says:

From: Douglas Anderson <dianders@chromium.org>

but the body of the mail includes:

From: Brian Norris <briannorris@chromium.org>

This ends up correctly-attributed in the mainline git tree:

commit 36b5d460261f16563f9196c49c936b3e17d237e3
Author: Brian Norris <briannorris@chromium.org>
Date: Mon Jun 20 10:56:42 2016 -0700

phy: rockchip-emmc: configure default output tap delay
...
Signed-off-by: Brian Norris <briannorris@chromium.org>
Signed-off-by: Douglas Anderson <dianders@chromium.org>


But more importantly: you can't split my patch in 2, because it makes
the series non-bisectable. As you split it, patch 1 is making an API
change, but it doesn't update the drivers that use that API. So the STM
DSI driver doesn't compile if you apply only patch 1. That's discouraged
within the Linux kernel.

So, let's make sure to keep this patch in 1 piece.

Brian
