Usually you jinx yourself when you say something like this, and you
forgot any sort of commit message above. I've fixed this locally so we
don't constantly submit back and forth, but please check this ahead of
time next time. You also didn't include a signoff on your two patches,
which is as easy as being willing to signoff on your work and
specifying the -s flag to git-commit. I've added a signoff for you
locally as well.

You forgot to add !sign to the example BUILDENV array here, but I've
done that locally so no need to resubmit.

Other than that the patch looks fine, I've started putting these
changes in a local branch that will end up in master soon enough.
