Please excuse my ignorance (and email client issues) I am still learning the
submission process. I'm not sure what kind of Fixes tag to add in this scenario.

This GPIO issue has existed since the driver's inception. It is a quirk of
hardware that has always existed on this platform. The driver was originally
implemented by Savoir-faire Linux. We discovered the issue and have had it
patched in our trees for years and wanted to push it upstream.

There is no public discussion on it, it was found and patched. And, aside from
the first commit of this driver, there is no commit that introduced any issue.

Can you please advise what kind of Fixes tag is appropriate in this situation?

Additionally, if I do add a Fixes tag, would that warrant a v2 patch? Or would
it just need to be an email response that includes it?

Kris
