Reorder my email addresses so it finds my email.

Sadly, people that don't run, leave alone running it
with --noremove-duplicates option. So your suggestion doesn't really
help me.

My preference is to get patches to both Inboxes if possible which isn't
possible unless -noremove-duplicate is default. Having this option as
default probably will annoy lot of people . So I am not asking for

That being said, I don't understand your comment. Are you recommending
using just one email in these entries?

Yes. And maybe set an autoforward rule in that email to
forward the received email to your other address.

Sounds good.

Another option would be to write your name
slightly differently in the 2 entries.

For instance, add "(LF)" to the entry like:

M: Thomas Renninger <trenn@xxxxxxxx>
M: Shuah Khan <shuah@xxxxxxxxxx>
M: Shuah Khan (LF) <skhan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
L: linux-pm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
S: Maintained
F: tools/power/cpupower/

and then the script won't
collapse the equally named but with different
email addresses into a single entry:

I like this option.
$ ./scripts/ -f tools/power/cpupower/
Thomas Renninger <trenn@xxxxxxxx> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
Shuah Khan <shuah@xxxxxxxxxx> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
"Shuah Khan (LF)" <skhan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (maintainer:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-pm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (open list:CPU POWER MONITORING SUBSYSTEM)
linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (open list)

Thanks for the idea. I will rework the patch and send it.
