I am truly sorry and apologise for it, I would never want to give you
the impression of being disrespectful of you and your work.
If you pay attention I manually wrote in the comments of all the past
versions of the patches that you were the original author, this time I
just forgot.
I guess it is really the time I start using git-send-email :)

Your work has been really important for my series and you deserve the
credit for it independently from which patch series gets applied.

I don't keep using your old patches as a base but I manually rebase over
the most recent patch series you sent every time.
Obviously it is not a perfect system and sometimes I can miss something,
this is why at the beginning I asked you to work together on the same
tree: I wanted to avoid exactly this sort of issues.

My intentions are true so my proposal of working on a common tree is
still valid, just let me know when you are interested.
