This one is missing and rightfully so. Maybe you get your mail setup for
sending patches right some day in the future.

This one has in the mail headers:

  In-Reply-To: <cover.1588001639.git.mgross@linux.intel.com>
  References: <cover.1588001639.git.mgross@linux.intel.com>
  From: Jia Zhang <qianyue.zj@alibaba-inc.com>
  Date: Mon, 1 Jan 2018 09:52:10 +0800

While it's correct that the patch is from Jia and was written on Jan. 1
2018, neither the From: nor the Date: header in the mail are correct.

That's commit b399151cb48db30ad1e0e93dd40d68c6d007b637 upstream. Do we
really want to backport that thing to 4.4 or just live with the uglies
of x86_cpuinfo::x86_mask ?

TBH, I don't care, but the stable people might have opinions.

FYI, the Date: headers are generally odd when you send patches as they
are not reflecting when the mail is sent. They reflect when the patch
was written.

Thanks,
