Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst has the following, but I
am sure people are happy to discuss changes and it does say "For
example", so maybe I am being to strict? The counter argument is that
there are various (semi-)automated processes that use these tags and
being consistent probably makes those processes (and life for those who
run them) easier.

If your patch fixes a bug in a specific commit, e.g. you found an issue using
``git bisect``, please use the 'Fixes:' tag with the first 12 characters of
the SHA-1 ID, and the one line summary. For example::

Fixes: e21d2170f366 ("video: remove unnecessary platform_set_drvdata()")

The following ``git config`` settings can be used to add a pretty format for
outputting the above style in the ``git log`` or ``git show`` commands::

abbrev = 12
fixes = Fixes: %h (\"%s\")
