Fixes tag


has these problem(s):

- No SHA1 recognised

I haven't seen a Fixes tag with a bug URL before, they usually reference
the buggy commit.

Sorry my bad, that should have been a BugLink tag. The patch in question is a bugfix,
but it is sorta hard to pinpoint the cause to a specific commit, this problem was
probably introduced during the conversion of nouveau to support atomic modesetting,
which is quite a while ago and involves lots of patches.

Not sure how to best fix this since fixing would require rewriting history. I hope this
is just something we can live with?
