thank you! I wasn't aware of that, but maybe the wiki[1] should be
updated to reflect that this is the preferred way to submit patches and
no longer the mailing list? It's even mentioning the usage of subversion
for the coreboot source, which is now obsolete, I guess.

I'll try to set it up for the next time. I already talked to Patrick why
the HTTP repo failed for me. Looks like my git version is to old and
that for lacks smart http support.

Due to the lack of a git repo I was unable to do so. But, in fact, I
used git send-email to deliver the message. And the email should have
almost looked like as git format-patch generates them -- meaning it has
a subject describing the change, a commit message and the SOB signature.
Anything else missing?

No, it was not. In fact, it's not the port that changed but the value
written. The additional bit is the "also set the system bit when
enabling the keyboard" part of the commit message.
