It sounds like DaveM wants you to create a normal (not a revert) patch
that removes the v1 changes while leaving the v2 changes intact.  In
the patch description you can mention that v1 was merged as a mistake
and that v2 is the correct fix (provide commit IDs for each in your
commit description using the usual 12-char hash snippet followed by
the subject in parens-and-quotes).
