Besides missing the Signoff, you also did not write your
Subject line properly.

You should format it as:

Subject: [PATCH] ${SUBSYSTEM_PREFIX}: Description.

Where ${SUBSYSTEM_PREFIX} should be "qlogic: " in this
case.

Do not fix this by replying to this email, instead make a new
fresh patch posting to the lists.

This also applied to all of your other submissions, they all
need to be fixed up in this manner at the very least.
