Can we please avoid referencing "lkml.org"?

It's just an unreliable broken website. [1][2] Much more important
though is that its URLs _hide_ the Message-Id field; running the
threat of losing the e-mail reference forever at some point in the
future.

From Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst:

If the patch follows from a mailing list discussion, give a
URL to the mailing list archive; use the https://lkml.kernel.org/
redirector with a ``Message-Id``, to ensure that the links
cannot become stale.

So the V1 link above should've been either:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/cover.1530716899.git.yi.z.zhang@linux.intel.com

or:

https://lkml.kernel.org/r/cover.1530716899.git.yi.z.zhang@linux.intel.com

and so on..

Thanks,

[2] The threading interface is also broken and in a lot of cases
does not show all messages in a thread
