What did you use to send this patch ?
Can you please use git send-email if you didn't ?
And if you cannot do that, an attachment would be better.

Otherwise, the commit log should always describe the full changes of
the patch, even for a resubmit.
We don't want to rely on mail-archive.com for keeping the link valid
forever, or any other mail archives.

There is also an interesting practive on dri-devel about versioning
resubmitted patches :
You simply use v2, v3 etc, and always keeping the original
description, and adding what changed in each version / resubmit.
