As you noticed (correctly), the output of "format-patch" is meant to
be usable by "am" that reads from the UNIX mbox format.  "From whom"
(not "From: whom") lines are traditional message boundaries, and
when you are sending your own patch, none of the RFC822 headers (nor
the "From whom" line) needs to be repeated in the message body.

the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
