patman: don't mess with signoffs
Currently patman assumes that there should be only one Signoff line and this is obviously incorrect: we often have to work with patches containing other people signoffs. Moreover, it's really desirable to preserve the comments between signoffs. So until some sophisticated signoff processing will be developed I suggest just don't mess with signoffs at all and treat them like plain text lines. The only drawback I've found so far is the case where you have a patch with someones else signoff but not yours and also have to patman tags under signoff line. In this case you will get extra empty line between signoffs. Signed-off-by: Ilya Yanok <ilya.yanok@cogentembedded.com>
