You should have a "Signed-off-by: Mario Smarduch ..." here, and you
should also add my authorship. You can do the latter with "git rebase
x git commit --amend -C HEAD --author 'Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini at redhat.com>'
after this patch. If you're using a patch queue instead (quilt or
similar) you can just edit the "From" line in the patch.
I guess if you reply to the patch with just
Signed-off-by: Mario Smarduch <m.smarduch at samsung.com>
the ARM maintainers can do the above for you, if there's no need for
I'll send an eighth patch to actually switch x86 to the new function.
Again, the maintainers can apply it in the right place, but please
include it yourself if you have to do a v14.
