Should I re-send the original patch with the updated comment then (thus
also being able to keep Andrew's Signed-off-by), and if so, is it
alright to keep Julien's Release-Acked-by?

Or will you use this later patch (presumably with your Signed-off-by),
in which case I should test it?

Things got rather confusing (apologies for my own part in the confusion).
