I think the signed-off-by chain needs to be modified. The way it appears,
you handled the patch first, then sent it to Linas, who forwarded it
to whoever will take the patches from the list.

This obviously isn't true, since you are actually the one who is sending
out the patches. Moreover, I believe that the linas at austin.ibm.com
address is now dead, and shouldn't be used for this any more.

So, depending on which of you two wrote the majority of a patch, I think
it should be either

| Signed-off-by: Manish Ahuja <mahuja at us.ibm.com>
| Acked-by: Linas Vepstas <linasvepstas at gmail.com>


| From: Linas Vepstas <linasvepstas at gmail.com>
| Signed-off-by: Manish Ahuja <mahuja at us.ibm.com>
