Sorry, never used -C before. I used:

git send-email --annotate -v2 -7 --to kexec at lists.infradead.org --cc deller at gmx.de,linuxppc-dev at lists.ozlabs.org -v --format-patch -C -M

However, it looks like it only works when started this way:

git send-email --format-patch -M -C --annotate -v2 -7 --to kexec at lists.infradead.org --cc deller at gmx.de,linuxppc-dev at lists.ozlabs.org -v

I'll resend v2.

Best Regards,
Sven
