That's a much better commit message. With that and with a Signed-off-by:
directly on the patch itself (rather than on the commit which adds the
patch to the llvmlinux repository), it can go straight to Linus.

Is it worth building a linux.git tree based on the current upstream
kernel, which can be included in linux-next and then pushed to Linus in
each merge window, with the "simple" fixes like this?
