It never ceases to amaze me the way human beings can find creative ways
to mess things up, no matter how well things are documented. The above
commit message (and the others that I've looked at) are all broken
because of this creativity.

In effect, because of the really weird format you've come up with here,
your patches are in effect *not* signed off by you.

The patch format is in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst
under the section marked "The canonical patch format". Please review.

Please wait a while (a few days) to see if anyone responds to _this_
posting with any other comments. Thanks.
