The problem is that the prefix wasn't added to the subject in the
original commit f68b883e8fad ("power: supply: add cros-ec USBPD charger
driver.") which added the driver. It's a common problem. Normally what
happens is that someone adds a driver and then random static checker
people like Colin or I send the first fixes and we have no idea what the
correct prefix should be. Anyway, checking the prefix is one of the
things we should look for when people add a new driver.

Also Colin you should CC Sameer because it's really his code. Someone
should fix so that it does git blame on the
lines before and after and adds people if the code is less than two
years old maybe.
