This patch has no n/M in the subject line; but is included in a thread
that also has a 0/2 cover letter, as well as 1/2 and 2/2 patches in
separate mails. Is that intentional?

When sending revision notes on a specific patch, it's best to place them...

...here, after the --- separator. They are useful to reviewers on the
list, but are stripped by 'git am' as they don't need to be part of the
git history (a year from now, we won't care how many iterations the
patch went through during review, only what actually landed).

There is no 2.13 release, and you've missed the 3.0 window. Please
update this and any other version reference to 3.1.
