As I requested of you last night, please phrase the subsystem
prefix of your Subject lines more correctly.

Just use the driver's name, in lower case, as one single word,
which in this case would be "dwc_eth_qos: ".

I'm telling you exactly what to use in the Subject line, there
is no ambiguity or confusion on what you need to do for me to
accept this patch.
