To build a tarball to feed to rpmbuild, do
$ make tarball

All patches should be sent to the mailing list with linux-kernel style
'Signed-Off-By'. The following git commands are your friends:

We use same mailing list for all Power Linux VPD and diagnostics projects
(ppc64-diag, libvpd, lsvpd, [lib]servicelog). It is common convention to
prefix your subject line with project name. This lets maintainer and other
developers more easily identify patches from patches targeted to other
projects. For example,
