SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/boot/KASLR: Fix unused variable warning

Avoid having "This patch" or "This commit" in the commit message. It is
tautologically useless.

Also, do

$ git grep 'This patch' Documentation/process

for more details.

You could explain here why the warning fires...

I'd be very interested to know how you even managed to create such a
well, hm, "patch"?!

For the future, before you send a patch:

- use checkpatch on it
- send it to yourself and try applying it first

Thx.
