Ah yes, thanks for pointing that out.

But please, don't cc your proposed patches straight to
sta...@vger.kernel.org. I usually leave it up to the maintainer that
merges the patch to add the Cc: line to the commit log.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe kvm" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
