What do you mean by "patches that are considered clean"?

"Clean" in the sense of is-not-a-hackery and/or
patch-does-not-follow-Linux-kernel-development-guidelines [1]?

[ EXAMPLES ]

[ commit subject-line ]

Like a "meaningful" subject-line...
I have seen patches which did not use commonly-used labels, like "x86/weight:".
( 'git log /path/to/file' tells someone how other's did it. )

[ commit message ]

Personally, I did not like the embedded commit-messages (change-log) -
it was sometimes not very helpful.
Helpful would be hints to a discussion thread (ML), bug-no in BTS,
output of a BROKEN build, etc.

...

Oh, if we all would follow Peter H. blog-article "On commit messages" [2].
( /me dreams of a better world. )
