please skip this message or put it after the diffstat and ---. It has no
useful information as commit message.

If we wanna provide extra details for the person applying these patches,
then after the --- (like the diffstat) is a good place. These are
showing up in the email and the archive, but are not part of the commit
message when the patch gets applied.
