When I submit a
patch in the Linux kernel subsystem, for example, netdev, where there exist two trees,
net.git is normally for bug fixes, and mistakenly submitted a bug fix in
net-next.git, am I supposed to re-send it with subject as in
[RESEND PATCH net.git ... ] ?
When re-sending a patch, you use v1 for the first resend, and any for other re-sends, you'll increment the number by 1.
[PATCH v1] folder-name: subject-name
An Example of a patch I resent twice:
