I haven't been clear about this one - let me do it better this time:
if you have to re-send the patches can you please add a note stating
that "none of our application require spread spectrum" to the
description so it's clear that you're disabling spread spectrum on
purpose.
your explanation about spread spectrum itself is perfectly fine
