That's exactly the case, I rebased Mathieu's patches to avoid having the
sha1s of the already published commits change, and wasn't aware that the
rebase would alter the committer field (but it does make sense in

I've now signed all the changes off and pushed the branches again,
hopefully no one will "notice" much...Going forward we'll avoid
rebasing things and shouldn't run into this problem again.

May I ask what tool you use to detect this? Given that checkpatch
doesn't care about the committer (afaict)...
