Of course it will - and this tells me that you did not read the comments
I left before the diffstat.  It's almost guaranteed to conflict with
virtually all the changes going into this merge window.

And this also confirms that too; I said I didn't want to add attributations
to it because you aren't going to be acking the patch which will eventually
be committed.

In sort, this patch _will_ be recreated by the script at the end of the
merge window, and whatever that patch ends up being is what will get
merged.  It's very likely (because of the inherent conflicts in doing
this) that it _will_ be different from this one.

What that means is if I add (your) acked-by to it, I will be adding it
to a different patch to the one you've sent this to.

What I want people to do with this is review it and make sure that the
script hasn't created any obvious mistakes; I've already done that but
the more eyes we get on it the better.
