Hi, Mark

I'm sorry for sending the unqualified patches two times.
It's my first time to submit patch into kernels, so I'm in lack of the submitting experiences.

I'll read the documents carefully, and I want to submit a codec(CS24L51) driver patch in recently
future. I hope everything will go with a swing at that time.


Best regards!

This still doesn't apply.  It looks like your MUA is corrupting the
patch - it's MIME encoded everything and replaced all the tabs with
spaces which is causing all the patch application programs I have to get
confused.  Documentation/email-clients.txt has some suggestions on how
to configure various MUAs to send patches cleanly.  Personally I always
use git send-email.  You probably also want to have a look at the
instructions in Documentation/SubmittingPatches with regard to the
formatting of your patch - the main thing being that the Signed-off-by
should go before the patch content.

In any case, I've manually applied the patch so no need to resubmit it.

I also notice that you've CCed trivial at kernel.org.  Please don't do that
except for things that can't possibly cause bugs - a change like this
doesn't really qualify since while the code clearly looks buggy it's
always possible that the code is just obscure.
