I have all of Linus' Acks. The only ones missing are yours and Ola's,
but I think Ola is on vacation still, so he's asked Roger to do it.
I don't know if you saw, but Linus has placed lots of Acked-by's which
are dependent on your say-so, hence why I was waiting for your response.

Bingo, thus why I was dubious about resending the entire patch-set too

They're not mail headers per-say, they're `git format-patch` headers.
I thought this was acceptable for single patches, hence why I've done
it lots of times and had no complaints (until now).

If there are some changes required in a single patch, I usually fix
it up, create a patch with `git format-patch` and send it as a reply
to either the original patch in the series or the mail containing the
suggestion. If this is wrong please educate me as I thought this was
acceptable, as I thought it would be less pain than sending the
entire patch-set again for just one change?
