OK, thanks. It seems it is about commit one patch, and it also seems no
"git pre-commit" command (my git version is "git version").

And do we have a tool to type a command to check all patches whether
missing sign-offs? (I guess, the version integrator need not check patch
one by one only for whether contents sign-offs).

Oh, I forgot one thing, the original "scripts/" (e.g.
in next-20130927), it is already smart enough. So can we treat our patch
as the fix patch for the latest changes?
