So this is what the changelog should be saying, not that it "fixes
checkpatch warnings".

checkpatch warnings in *existing* code are meaningless, unless they
uncover a *real* problem in it which quite arguably this one is. But
in those cases patch changelogs should talk about the *real* problems
and they don't even need to mention checkpatch then as far as I'm

Send this one with a better changelog and I'll apply it.

I speak only for myself.
