Yes, the patch is against Sakari's ccp2 branch. It should work ok there.

I don't think you can do much to fix the automated system....

We could, if "git format-patch" can be setup to auto append lines

       parent-commit: X
       parent-patch-id: Y

With that information, as long as the parent commit/patch is public --
either by "git push" or posting patch to mailing lists -- we'll have
good chance to find and use it as the base for "git am".

Currently "git format-patch" already has the option "--base=auto" to
auto append the more accurate lines

       base-commit: P
       prerequisite-patch-id: X
       prerequisite-patch-id: Y
       prerequisite-patch-id: Z

That's the best information git can offer. Unfortunately it cannot
ALWAYS work without human aid. What's worse, when it cannot figure out
the base-commit, the whole "git format-patch" command will abort like

       $ git format-patch -1
       fatal: base commit shouldn't be in revision list

That fatal error makes it not a viable option to always turn on
"--base=auto" in .gitconfig.

Without a fully-automated solution, I don't think many people will
bother or remember to manually specify base-commit before sending
patches out.

To effectively save the robot from "base commit" guessing works, what
we can do is to

1) append "parent-commit"/"parent-patch-id" lines when git cannot
  figure out and append the "base-commit"/"prerequisite-patch-id"
  lines. So that the test robot always get the information to do
  its job.

2) advise kernel developers to run this once

       git config format.useAutoBase yes

  to configure "--base=auto" as the default behavior.
