Another two nitpicks:

* Since this is the second version of the patch, write "[PATCH v2]"
in the title instead; that way people know you have sent an earlier
version. On top of that, you should explain the differences between
each version after the "---" line (i.e. the part that does not belong
to the commit message).

* You may want to write down who you CC'd (e.g. Tony and the stable
mailing list) in "Cc: ..." lines before the Signed-off-by line.

Thanks for the patch!

Hope that helps,
Miguel
