7 - patch does not apply
8 - patch does not build
9 - multiple patches with no ordering indicated
10 - patch made against unknown tree
11 - patch made against old kernel tree
12 - ask me to pull random git trees with no description of what is in them
13 - multi-patch series that breaks the build half way through the series

14 - patches that blindly do checkpatch cleanups without realizing what they are fixing
15 - patches that do more than one thing in the patch
16 - fixes for compiler warnings that are due to old versions of gcc not being smart (hint, upgrade your version of gcc)
