I don't know what happened, I used git for this, I don't use quilt for
"normal" patches accepted into my trees anymore, only for stable kernel

So either the mail is malformed, or git couldn't figure it out, I've
attached the original message below, and cc:ed the git mailing list.

Also, Simon emailed me after this was committed saying something went
wrong, but I couldn't go back and rebase my tree.  Simon, did you ever
figure out if something was odd on your end?

Git developers, any ideas?
