you are right, totally stupid of me to waste other peoples time like this.

I forgot the following things
* mention that i would welcome a ack'ed by from you
* mention that these patches should go via MIPS with the other patches
in the series
* I should have put in the commit messages, that you were CC'ed on, what
the rest of the series does
* on the last "fix locking issues" patch I also forgot to CC Ralf and MIPS

One question if I may ask
* do you want to be CC'ed for a full series even if only 1 patch relates
to netdev or should I simply think more about the commit message so it
is apparent what i expect ?

again, sorry for wasting your time with stupidity ... I will clean up
the mess I made during today ...

hope you accept my apology,
