Whoa, sorry, I should not post patches late at night ;-) Of course this
should only have contained the Signed-off-by. My bad.

No, that's fine, it was an error on my side.

We _do_ sometimes use sign-off+ack from the same person, but only
for very small/trivial patches (typos, cosmetic fixes etc) which are
committed right away.
Usually I would consider this to be one of them, but I wanted to post
the patch for review anyway, just in case something depends on the
exact output of a booting LinuxBIOS...

Cheers, Uwe.
