Excellent! very welcome and thanks again for picking this up.

No - I generally do not muck with commit messages that I didn't write.
It's part of the "finger print" of a patch (so one can trace origin
across distro's and kernel versions).

My comment was intended for reviewers and could be included in the
"comments after the commit message". (ie below the "---" marker in the
patch email).

That's a risky thing to point out for two reasons:

1) I can send you more HW than you could possibly ever use. :)

2) Reviewers of this patch series are already wondering how you
verified the AX88772x patches work on current (or
netdev-next) branches.

Please email me with your shipping address (OFFLIST!) and I'll try to
send you some Asix HW to test with. I'm located in "Silicon Valley"
(USA) and can easily ship in the US. Other countries is a bit harder
and in some cases not possible.
