You might want to change your email setup so that the above reads "H
Hartley Sweeten <hsweeten at visionengravers.com>" or whatever.  Because
most patch-merging people's tools will end up marking this commit as
being from someone called "hartleys".

Alternatively, put an explicit From: line at the top of the changelog.

Looks OK to me, but I'm an MTD ignoramus.
