I generally think Fixes should only be used for "real bug" fixes.

The one exception is when I'm reviewing a patch that fixes an "unused
assignment" static checker warning is that I know which commit
introduced the warning. I don't have strong feelings if it's in the
Fixes tag or if it's just mentioned in the commit message. But it
helps me when I'm reviewing if I don't have to grovel through git
history myself. Also I think that it's always a good exercise for
people fixing patches to look at how the bug was introduced.
