Thanks Greg. I will recreate the patches and shall drop the mentioned
ones. But I am still not able find where I am doing wrong in
generating the patches. I am following your tutorial :) but may be
missing something. Please help. I am doing in the following ways:

1. I am downloading the latest rc source archive from
under directory /pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/testing
2. Then creating my own git repository treating the base source as master.
3. Creating a branch from it and tries to fix some sources.
4. Create the patch through git format-patch
5. Submit the patch through git send-email command.

Dry run works fine with my repository. Could you please help?
