I initially reacted to "was reversed" with "yikes, did we break the
mailmap reader and we need to update the file?", but apparently that
is not what this patch is about.  I think what is happening here is
that cdb6b5ac (".mailmap: Combine more (name, email) to individual
persons", 2013-08-12) removed

-Brian M. Carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

and then added these two lines

+brian m. carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Brian M. Carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
+brian m. carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

where *.net address did not come from any other entry for you in the
file.  I guess the author of the patch saw that you were sending
your messages from the .net address and tried to help by unifying
the two addresses, without knowing your preference and recorded two
reversed entries.

Will queue as-is for now, but if you want to update the log message
I do not mind taking a reroll.
