No problem, and understood.

There are various reasons we might use a "FIXUP" prefix within the
Chrome OS kernel; among them: a patch might diverge upstream, as it gets
reviewed, but we might already have applied the patch to our tree.

In this case, you have a totally new patch.

[If you wanted to represent the "FIXUP" concept here, you might use a
tag like this, before the Signed-off-by:

Fixes: 1f0d3bb02785 ("pwm: Add ChromeOS EC PWM driver")

If in doubt, check the git log for examples (as you did already), but
note that there are different practices for mainline Linux and for the
Chromium OS, as Chromium OS is a downstream project.

Yes, that'd be all.

(And you can include my 'Reviewed-by:' tag when you resend.)
