This isn't a good changelog comment. It should explain why you are
doing what you are doing, and maybe what, at the very least. Saying
something will happen in the future isn't good.

Also your subject line should have the subsystem/driver in it, to make
it more obvious. Something like:
Subject: staging: rtl8192u: fix block comments in rtl819x_HTProc.c

There are thousands of good examples of good changelog comments and
subject lines in the email archives, and in the kernel log itself :)

Please fix this up and redo the whole series and resend.
