Hmm, I am pretty sure checkpatch.pl should have complained here: the
correct way of mentioning a previous commit is:
'commit <12+ chars of sha1> ("<title line>")' - ie: 'commit
37548659bb22 ("Input: elantech - query the min/max information
beforehand too")'

That is weird. Can we get confirmation from Dave or Jingle about that?

Stephen will complain here: see multiple google results when you
search for "lkml linux-next: Fixes tag needs some work"

Basically:
- SHA1 should be at least 12 digits long
- the commit title should not be split, even if it gets longer than 80 columns.

Cheers,
Benjamin
