[PATCH] docs: submitting-patches: Fix crossref to 'The canonical patch format'

From: Akira Yokosawa
Date: Wed Apr 27 2022 - 05:42:49 EST

The reference to `explicit_in_reply_to` is pointless as when the
reference was added in the form of "#15" [1], Section 15) was "The
canonical patch format".
The reference of "#15" had not been properly updated in a couple of
reorganizations during the plain-text SubmittingPatches era.

Fix it by using `the_canonical_patch_format`.

The maintainer will thank you if you write your patch description in a
form which can be easily pulled into Linux's source code management
-system, ``git``, as a "commit log". See :ref:`explicit_in_reply_to`.
+system, ``git``, as a "commit log". See :ref:`the_canonical_patch_format`.

Solve only one problem per patch. If your description starts to get
long, that's a sign that you probably need to split up your patch.
