SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/6] rhashtable: improve documentation for rhashtable_walk_peek()
From: NeilBrown <>
Date: Tue, 27 Mar 2018 10:33:04 +1100

> The documentation for rhashtable_walk_peek() wrong. It claims to

Please mention the "one user" explicitly in both locations where
you refer to it in this commit message.
