Here is another (simpler) way to do it.

Attached is a file named: git-add-reviewed-by

Put that file in ~/bin and make it executable. Then edit your ~/.gitconfig 
file and add a new alias

arb = filter-branch --msg-filter ~/bin/git-add-reviewed-by

If you want to add it to the last 10 patches, call

git arb HEAD~10..HEAD

To just add it to the top patch you have to call:

git arb HEAD~1..HEAD

but you can add another alias for that:

arbh = filter-branch --msg-filter ~/bin/git-add-reviewed-by HEAD~1..HEAD
