Thanks for having a look.
It seems odd to require detailed commit messages, when we don't require
the same level of quality in the code.
Naturally when the driver is moved out of staging a properly detailed
commit message should be added, but is that needed on the way in to
staging? At this stage I don't know much more than is already there.
After I've cleaned up the code I probably will.

For patch 01/13 you asked "what kind of device this is". The subject
line makes it clear that it is a "pcie driver". What extra detail did
you want? Would it be sufficient to just copy the subject line so that
it appears twice in the commit message?
