The larger patch gets a bunch of rejects against Linus's current tree. 
Please update and resend.

Please send the patches via email, too.  That way lots of people help to
check your code and it's considerably less fiddly at my end.

Canonical form is one patch per email, with the changelog at the top of the
email, with a useful Subject: which describes the patch.  Each patch email
will have a different subject, and that subject ain't the name of the file
which holds the patch!  The patch will be in the body of the email of your
MUA is halfway sane.  As an attachment if not.
