No need for a "Fixes" tag for a revert - the commit it reverts _is_
the thing it fixes, so that's implicitly there.

But yes, a reported-by with an explanation of the actual case that
broke would be a very good idea, so that the revert documents the
particular case that caused it, not just the "big picture" case.
