I think Thomas is saying that instead of "This patch introduces
callback ...", you could say "Introduce callback of ...".

The changelog is *part* of the patch, so the context is obvious and
there's no need to include the words "This patch".

I make the same changes to patches I receive. In fact, I would go
even further and say "Add callback .setup_affinity() ..." because "add"
means the same as "introduce" but is shorter and simpler.
