Nope, and it slipped through the cracks. More and more patches that we see lack
proper acks, and it's becoming a problem. I have to go search for them on the
lists and see if they came in without being tagged on the patch, etc.

Time to get more strict on that, obviously. :(

But yeah, one duplicate trivial patch like this shouldn't be an issue.
