Hi Hans,

I ran checkpatch and see no error. I will check my git-send-email

scripts/checkpatch.pl  0001-ata-Disable-AHCI-ALPM-feature-for-Ampere-Computing-e.patch total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 39 lines checked

0001-ata-Disable-AHCI-ALPM-feature-for-Ampere-Computing-e.patch has no obvious style problems and is ready for submission.


With regards,
Suman

Small remark, normally the changelog is put after the Signed-off-by messages like
this:

"""

Signed-off-by: Rameshwar Prasad Sahu <rameshwar.sahu at amperecomputing.com>

Changes for v3:
* Fix the indentation and whitespace warnings.

Changes for v2:

* Introduce the new ata_port_info object which includes ATA_FLAG_NO_LPM.
* Include this object for eMAG SATA inside the acpi match table.
* Retrieve the ata_port_info from the acpi match table.
"""

This will cause git am to remove it, so that the git history just has your original commit message.

By itself this would not be a reason to request a new version, but it seems you've copy and pasted the patch from "git format-patch" output into you mail client. I tried to run checkpatch myself to make sure you caught all whitespace issues and I got this:

[hans at shalem linux]$ scripts/checkpatch.pl ~/\[PATCH\ v3\]\ ata\:\ Disable\ AHCI\ ALPM\ feature\ for\ Ampere\ Computing\ eMAG\ SATA.eml

Followed by lots more errors, line 177 of the email is empty, while it should contain a single space. This stripping of whitespace typically is the result of copy pasting or some other processing of the patch.

Please try to re-send v3 using the "git send-email" command, so that we get a patch which we can actually apply.

Regards,

Hans
