SubjectRe: [PATCH] Documentation: networking: device drivers: Remove stray asterisks

Well, yes and no.

I think it's a mistake that --no-keep-cr (which is the default) only
acts on the outer envelope.

Now, *originally* the outer envelope was all that existed so it makes
sense in a historical context of "CR removal happens when splitting
emails in an mbox". And that's the behavior we have.

But then git learnt to do MIME decoding and extracting things from
base64 etc, and the CR removal wasn't updated to that change.

I guess "documented" is arguable in the sense that the git
documentation does talk about "git-mailsplit" as an implementation
detail, but still..
