This series is ill-formed:

  - Jul 22  5:39 Shiju Jose      [PATCH v13 0/2] ACPI / APEI: Add support to not
  - Jul 22  5:39 Shiju Jose      └─>[PATCH v13 1/2] ACPI / APEI: Add a notifier
  - Jul 22  5:42 Shiju Jose      [PATCH v13 0/2] ACPI / APEI: Add support to not
  - Jul 22  5:42 Shiju Jose      └─>[PATCH v13 2/2] PCI: hip: Add handling of Hi

Patches 1/2 and 2/2 never appear in the same thread.  Both should be
replies to 0/2.  And should be only *one* v13 0/2, not two :)
