Hi Matthias,

Before you merged my branch, which was fine, but later you rebased all
this thus making yourself committer. Commits pulled from other trees
should in general not be rebased, because it creates duplicates - there
are ones in my tree, and separate in yours.

Additionally, such rebase changes the author, so you need your SoB.

Since you already rebased it, I propose you add your own SoB to Mediatek
patches and drop the one hisilicon (75a3c81bc634). I will do the reverse
- drop Mediatek and keep hisilicon.

Best regards,
