Hi Wuych

Please be a bit more specific with your subject prefix.

To get an idea what others have used, you can do:

git log --oneline drivers/net/ethernet/freescale/

So at least add net. And since you only touch xgmac, you could use

net: xgmac:

If you had touch multiple drivers within freescale then net:
freescale: would be better.

These prefixes are important. Reviewers tend to have interest in
specific parts of the kernel. The prefix is what draws their
attention, makes them look at a patch or not.
