This change was there before but Greg told me to do only one logical
change per patch (which was a struct member rename), so I reverted it.
I believe this is needed because this parameter still uses Hungarian
notation, which is against the LK coding style. Also, it makes sense to
update the name given my previous change.

I didn't know that it should be send this way, especially given the
fact that Outreachy applicants should first get 3-5 patches out before
creating a patchset. Or has something changed in this regard?

I can add this in but will that still count as a one logical change?
I described the comment update, will that suffice?

I plan to do so after correcting the name variable.

Thank you for clarifying this. I've been following the Submitting
Patches docs[1] and thought this is needed.


Thanks,
