The message you are responding to is *not* an output from
format-patch but was written in my MUA.

The way I work when I show "this should work" patch is to:

 (1) Think, edit in my working tree, compile, eyeball "git diff HEAD",
     think again, and test;

 (2) Hit "Reply All" to the message I am going to give "this should
     work" response to, and start composing the response;

 (3) Run "git diff --stat -p HEAD" to have its output appended at
     the end of the message I started to compose in the previous

 (4) Write everything that should come before the output I appended
     in the previous step, i.e. "-- >8 --", in-body "Subject:", log,
     sign-off, and three-dash lines;

 (5) Send it out; and

 (6) Run "git reset --hard" and move on.

The blank line was added in step (4), not step (3), which does not
even have any commit log message, as the patch does not come from
any existing commit.  Later I may pick it up and apply to a topic
branch just like I do for patches from other people and that is the
point when such a patch becomes a commit for the first time.
