When patch sender's name has special characters,
git send-email did not quote it before matching
against the author name.
As a result it would produce mail like this:

        Date: Thu, 23 May 2013 16:36:00 +0300
        From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <m...@redhat.com>
        To: qemu-de...@nongnu.org
        Cc: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <m...@redhat.com>
        Subject: [PATCH 0/9] virtio: switch to linux headers
        Message-Id: <1369316169-20181-1-git-send-email-...@redhat.com>

        From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <m...@redhat.com>

Fix by sanitizing before matching to patch author name.
