Right, that's not it's purpose.

It's for that email address to know which kernel version the patch
was generated against, which is useful information when I come to
apply it.  It gets filtered out from the commit message.  It can go
anywhere, even below the -- line.

If you don't want to cooperate, you will have to rely on my notoriously
bad email skills to scan the mailing list for random patches to apply
some time (maybe days or even weeks) later after you send your message.
Which just won't happen.  It's why I wrote scripts which are some 20
years old to solve my bad email patch handling skills.

according to speedtest.net.
