Unrelated to the patch itself, but since it has been mentioned, let me
share what I know, I believe Thomas or others will correct me if I am wrong:

- Everyone can Ack.
  And this is useful information for maintainers, so it is something
good when more people review and ack. Please do.

- Multiple ack or review is better.

- But each Ack does not have same weight, maintainer decides on this
weight, based on contribution of the person who ack'ed.

- There is slight difference between Acked-by and Reviewed-by:

-- Acked-by: Kind of asking for patch to be applied, saying this patch
is good and please get it.

-- Reviewed-by: Saying I have done the review at my best and patch looks
good to me.

Acked-by has slightly more responsibility than Reviewed-by.

If you are not maintainer of that field, and not have strong opinion
about that patch to be merged, it is possible to prefer Reviewed-by
against Acked-by.

But overall both are good, and definitely better than not saying
anything at all.
