And next time when you send out the patch, please be more respect to my work.

You dropped all the original author(me) of patchset, and only add a sign-off 
for me. If you don't aware the difference, here is a snippet of 

532 The "from" line must be the very first line in the message body,
533 and has the form:
535         From: Original Author <author@xxxxxxxxxxx>
537 The "from" line specifies who will be credited as the author of the
538 patch in the permanent changelog.  If the "from" line is missing,
539 then the "From:" line from the email header will be used to determine
540 the patch author in the changelog.

As you see, the first two kernel patches of mine contained file from Jeremy 
and Keir, and I add the "From" for them properly to respect their works.

Another thing is, you were keeping using my old patches as your base, while I 
was working with the reviewers to update the patch quickly. I don't think 
that's a kind of respect to both reviewers' and my work. You would duplicate 
reviewer's effect, especially you always repost the whole patch(and drop my 
authorship) rather than the different part. I've split patches in order to 
provide a code base for further development, but you complete ignored them and 
keeping post the whole patchset based on my old patches.

Please be more professional. Thanks.

Yang, Sheng
