Please don't refer to commits via their bare hash number.

This commit actually has a different hash in my tree:

commit 096b7fe012d66ed55e98bc8022405ede0cc80e96
Author:     Li Zefan <lizf at cn.fujitsu.com>
AuthorDate: Wed Jul 29 15:04:04 2009 -0700
Commit:     Linus Torvalds <torvalds at linux-foundation.org>
CommitDate: Wed Jul 29 19:10:35 2009 -0700

    cgroups: fix pid namespace bug

And it will definitely have a different hash in linux-next, -stable,
distro trees, etc.

So the conventional way of referring to a commit within a changelog is

096b7fe012d66ed55e98bc8022405ede0cc80e96 ("cgroups: fix pid namespace bug")
