Yes, that is exactly what I intended to do, but digging a bit, I guess the issue
has been that my current configuration relies on git format-patch to insert my
SoB, and it seems to not identify the marker so it inserts the SoB after it
instead of before. Looks like it was broken in the series v2 too.
Fixed my configuration to sign-off right at commit time.
