Hi, Aviral!

Always check your patches with ./scripts/checpatch.pl. It will warn You
if your patch has common errors (ex: too long subject line like yours). 

I think, this link might be helpful
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/process/submitting-patches.html.
This document contains canonical patch format and other useful
info about "how to send patches".

Goog luck! 


With regards,
Pavel Skripkin
