That was actually Jonathan's catch. :)

I read up on Acked-by on the kernel docs, as I didn't know exactly what
it meant, but I'm not so sure on how to proceed once the patch has been
acked.  For future patches, do I add this Acked-by line on the patch's
message body? Or is this just an informal way of approval?

So this means I should skip this patch on v4, right?
