Getting there cheers, I'm off the hardcore pain-killers, not in
excruciating pain and fed up with day-time TV, so back at work ;)

Yeah they were. I have a little python GUI I knocked up to help make
sure I send patch series correctly and don't have to keep working out
the options I need (long way from perfect yet), it refuses to allow me
to send if check patch doesn't pass and the few warnings were easier to
deal with than looking at improving the GUI!
