I find this wording approach improvable.

Would you like to indicate with such information (according to
the topic “net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak in rx|netdev_queue_add_kobject”)
that your issue was detected also with the help of the kernel fuzzing
tool “syzkaller”?


How do you think about to add an imperative wording to the change description?
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst?id=b0c3ba31be3e45a130e13b278cf3b90f69bda6f6#n151


Will it be helpful to combine this update step together with
“edac: Fix reference count leak in edac_pci_main_kobj_setup”
into a small patch series?
