I realize I never reacted to this patch before (and we're at v9), so you
might not welcome my feedback at this point.

The explanation why I've only reacted now is the following: there's an
agreement between Phil and myself that Phil handles fw_cfg reviews
primarily, and I review only (or almost only) Phil's patches for fw_cfg.
Furthermore, all versions of this particular patch, as far as I can see,
CC'd me but not Phil. So Phil never knew to look, and I never checked
(this being an fw_cfg patch, per subject line) beyond the author being
Phil or not.

The solution is of course to use the get_maintainer.pl script for
determining reviewers, and adding them with "Cc:" tags to the commit
message. (You also missed Marcel at the least; see my previous
response.) git-send-email is supposed to adhere to those "Cc:" tags.

The reason I've looked now is... I guess I was too tired to remember our
agreement with Phil.
