Well, someone needs to resend them. If you're prepared to do that then
thanks, and please remember to add your Tested-by where you feel that's

Documentation/SubmittingPatches is good.
These patches should have a From: line at the start of the changelog
indicating the original author. They should have the original author's
Signed-off-by: (if that was in the original patch) and also your
Signed-off-by: as you were on the delivery path. And optionally your
Tested-by, as above.
Be sure to cc everyone (ocfs2-devel, linux-kernel, Mark, Joel, myself
and the original author(s).
Lots of email clients like to mangle patches, including gmail :( Email
the patchset to yourself first and check that what you received still
applies. Try using text/plain attachments if they are being mangled.
