Nah, this would add a reference to the fact that the cpumask format is
not really a stable thing and thus cannot be considered a userpsace
regression. And having this info is important IMO in case someone is
wondering in the future.

In general, having more and even redundant info in the commit messages
is much better than having less info. I can't count the times I've been
staring at a one-liner commit message and trying to rhyme up what was
the purpose of doing it this way.

So more is more, in this case. :-)
