Hello, Valentin

I'm sorry not to have asked for your option.  When I saw
"Seems alright to me." I felt a huge encouragement and rushed.

I was in doubt should I promote "Seems alright to me." to "Ack".
Instead of asking, I wrongly did it right the way.  I knew may I'm
just forging, and added a log in the cover letter:

>        Add Valentin's ack for patch 10 because "Seems alright to me." and
>        add Valentin's comments to the changelog which is integral.

Anyway, it is my bad and I learnt.

Hello Peter, cloud you help change it if there is no other
feedback that causes V3 patchset to be made.

Thanks
