Your covering message for this series of six patches:

From: Shawn Guo <shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
To: alsa-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: [PATCH 0/6] ASoC: a few cleanups on sound/soc/fsl
Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2012 22:09:35 +0800
Message-Id: <1330092582-21180-1-git-send-email-shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
X-Mailer: git-send-email 1.7.5.4
In-Reply-To: <1329979644-31046-1-git-send-email-shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
References: <1329979644-31046-1-git-send-email-shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>

Your patch 1 from a previous series:

From: Shawn Guo <shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
To: alsa-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: [PATCH 1/4] ASoC: imx: let SND_MXC_SOC_FIQ select FIQ
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2012 14:47:21 +0800
Message-Id: <1329979644-31046-1-git-send-email-shawn.guo@xxxxxxxxxx>
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Notice the same message ids.  That means your covering letter with
subject "[PATCH 0/6] ASoC: a few cleanups on sound/soc/fsl" is a reply
to your "[PATCH 1/4] ASoC: imx: let SND_MXC_SOC_FIQ select FIQ" message.

Consequently anyone who reads list mail by threads gets your new series
of six patches attached to your previous series of four patches.  That
can be extremely annoying, especially when it ends up being buried in
peoples mailboxes as a direct result of threaded sorting - and it's
a recipe for your patches to be ignored.
