I don't see any e-mail confusion. There is a clear comment in the pull
request indicating that you need to sign the CLA.

Or perhaps you mean that you have already signed this CLA, and just
because your patch had the wrong author e-mail, the Github bot didn't
recognize you as a person who has signed the CLA ?
