Well, I agree it is confusing. So I have discussed privately about
this with Arnd (on IRC):

<rperier> What is the real usage of the "Link:" tag ? it is mainly
used as background informations for referencing archives or patches on
lore.k.o , but it can also be used for referencing something else or
not ?
(like information for a board)
[...]
<arnd> right, it's pretty much never wrong to add a Link: tag for the
patch submission that was picked up, but you can also add it for any
other reference, e.g.issue trackers or datasheets that may be relevant

----

Which replies to the question, so it is okay for me ;)

Romain
