Hi Jeff, Randy,
We are sorry about that. We will split the first patch into multiple smaller
patches and resubmit them one-by-one.
We appreciate all your patience.

Regards,
Ravi

When we say "separate logical changes", we mean it :)

This means that your level1 patch should be split into at least 4 patches.

Second, send each patch in a separate email, as described in
http://linux.yyz.us/patch-format.html (and
Documentation/SubmittingPatches) rather than sending as a tarball.

        Jeff
