The following Fixes line in commit log emits no warning:
   Fixes: Use packed mode for 32 bits per word transfers to increase

Neither does a fixes with mismatched commit description:
   Fixes: e4da63cda51f ("networking: packet_mmap: fix old config reference")

which should have been infact:
   Fixes: e4da63cda51f ("docs: networking: packet_mmap: fix old config

I could work on this if Lukas and Joe are okay with it.

Thank you,
