thanks for your patch.

Can you please fix your mail client to have proper mail headers? It

  Content-Type: text/plain
  Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

but it fails to provide the charset information. That causes the footer
to become unreadable garbage not only in my mail reader. See:

What's worse is that is causes my patch handling scripts to decode the
mail body correctly. And I'm not really inclined to figure out how to
handle this case.

That's not the same and adds a barrier which is not needed.

Not a big problem in that particular error handling code path, but in
general you really have to look whether your replacement is resulting in
the same code.

If not then you need to make an argument in the changelog why you are
replacing existing code with something which is not fully equivalent.

For this particular case, please check the implementation and read the
documentation of set_current_state() in include/linux/sched.h.

This is the resulting garbage. Not that I could decipher the chinese
characters which should be here instead, but at least they would look
way nicer. But see below:

Can you please remove this disclaimer completely (which avoids the
garbage issue as well) ?

It does not make any sense if you send mail to a public mailing list:

 1) If you send mail to a public list which is archived in public then
    the information can't be confidential and restricted to a particular
    audience. It can be accessed by everyone on this planet who has
    access to the internet.

 2) If you really send confidental information accidentally then there
    is no way to delete it. It's out there in the public and in archives
    and you can't call it back.
