Please have a good look at what you are sending out.  I don't understand
why this report has come to linuxppc-dev (the patch touches an
arch/powerpc file, but none of the problems reported are in that file).
You should put the .config on a web site somewhere and include the URL and
you should not include the whole patch (these were all quite large) -
people can find them given a tree and commit (like above).

And you sent out 7 reports for the same patch!

I approved this bunch, but will not (unless pressured) approve any more.
This scatter gun automated approach is like the boy crying wolf.

I appreciate the effort, but please tone down the reports considerably.
