    format-patch: preserve subject newlines with -k · 9553d2b2
    Jeff King authored
    In older versions of git, we used rfc822 header folding to
    indicate that the original subject line had multiple lines
    in it.  But since a1f6baa5 (format-patch: wrap long header
    lines, 2011-02-23), we now use header folding whenever there
    is a long line.
    This means that "git am" cannot trust header folding as a
    sign from format-patch that newlines should be preserved.
    Instead, format-patch needs to signal more explicitly that
    the newlines are significant.  This patch does so by
    rfc2047-encoding the newlines in the subject line. No
    changes are needed on the "git am" end; it already decodes
    the newlines properly.
