What would you like?  I meant to convey that:

    - It was a [PATCH]
    - It was for the MPC85XXADS boards,
    - A specific patch release identified by date,
    - That it came in multiple parts, in this case -1 and -2,
    - That its primary purpose was TLB/DDR related

Most of that information is geared towards potential searching
of the archives, your information, my internal logging, and
hopefully some form of "quick identification".

Where did I go wrong?

In fact, I was 5K over the mailing list size limit and was
informed that it wasn't sent to the list.  Last time I sent
something to the list that was over the size limit, you
specifically asked me to resend it in multiple parts.

So this time, that is exactly what I did.

So yes, it was redundant and one of the patches, the first,
was expected to be /dev/nulled.  In the second posts, I clearly
indicated that it was a re-send of the earlier one due to size
limit problems.

My apologies.
