We won't reject patches that lack S-o-b, but it is strongly recommended.
When you re-send patches, revised or not, it would be very good to document the
changes compared to the previous revision in the commit message and/or the
cover letter. If you have already received Reviewed-by or Acked-by tags, you
should evaluate whether they still apply and include them in the respective
commit messages. Otherwise the tags may be lost, reviewers miss the credit they
deserve, and the patches may cause redundant review effort.
