At the beginning I'm sorry if this post is completely unrelated to this 
mailing list.
I'm trying to find the base linux kernel version from which a patch has 
been created and posted to LKML.
Most patches contain the index line. Is it the well known git index 
(staging area) ?
Can I use the index to find the exact kernel version from which a patch was 
Please look at an example patch sent to LKML:

It contains the following index line:
index 8dd1e55..9b0c81e 100644

I tried to find it using "git log" but I couldn't.

Please help me to determine the exact kernel version.

thanks in advance
