Meta-comment here.

I've been having to hand-edit your patches to get them to be able to
apply so far, which is fine for 1-10 patches at a time, but when staring
down a 55-patch series, that's not ok for my end.

The problem is that your email client is turning everything into base64
text. On it's own, that's fine, but when doing so it turns the
line-ends from unix ones, into dos line-ends. So, when git decodes the
base64 text into "plain text" the patch obviously does not apply due to
the line-ends not matching up.

Any chance you can fix your email client to not convert the line-ends?

thanks,

greg k-h
