I do mark patches -- acording to stable kernel rules. But you are
apparently using different rules, not written anywhere, and I get
complains when I don't mark patches according to _those_.

But this was supposed to be about testing.

And I'd like to see Tested: no/compile headers, instead.

[And yes, motivation for this was that broken LED patches were merged
to stable without any testing, and when that was questioned, I was
told that testing was not performed because it would require unusual
hardware called "USB keyboard".]
