I see your updated patch, but for some reason 'b4' is unhappy about it, with

$ b4 am


✗ [PATCH v3] staging: r8188eu: Fix PPPoE tag insertion on little
endian systems

your DKIM looks fine on the messages I see, but now that I look at it
on the mailing list, I notice that your DKIM really is very wrong, and
has a lot of headers that a DKIM signature should *not* have.

Your DKIM signature includes header names that are very much for list
management, so by definition DKIM will fail for any email you send
through a mailing list. Headers like
:Resent-Message-ID:List-Id:List-Help:List-Unsubscribe" etc.

The DKIM setup should protect the meaningful headers that matter to
the sender, not things that the mail system will validly add when it
passes through.

So the DKIM header list should be things like

Not things like "Sender" or mailing list things.

Anyway, I was going to just commit it directly, but with the DKIM
verification failing, I was a bit less eager to. And then I noticed
that you used "be16_to_cpu()" - which is technically correct - which
doesn't match the other code in that file.

That driver uses the traditional "htons()" to convert to network byte
order. And yes, our naming with "be16_to_cpu()" etc is much more
legible and does do the reverse, but it looks very odd to mix the two
naming conventions. Either use one or the other, but not a mix.
