There are some problems with the version in the patch system[1]:

  (1) You still have the changelog in the commit message (I asked you to
      remove this last time).

  (2) The commit message isn't line-wrapper appropriately

  (3) Your Signed-off-by line is truncated

The patch system does actually support git, so you can add:

  KernelVersion: 4.3-rc4

or whatever kernel you based your patch on somewhere after your SoB but
before the diff and then mail it to patchesATarm.linux.org.uk. You
probably also want to move the current patch to "superseded" so Russell
doesn't end up with two copies.
