has these problem(s):
- Subject has leading but no trailing quotes
- Subject does not match target commit subject
git log -1 --format='Fixes: %h ("%s")'
The above fixes tag follows the recommended format except that it is
followed by a kernel version number. Is there a recommended format for
embedding the kernel version number in a Fixes: tag? I think that
information is useful. I haven't found any recommendations for how to do
that in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst.
