Thank you for finding this issue! I think the David suggested subject[1] is
better, though.

I think we could add below Fixes: and Cc: tags?

Fixes: 57223ac29584 ("mm/damon/paddr: support the pageout scheme")
Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> # 5.16.x

Seems your patch is not based on mm-unstable tree[2]. Could you please rebase
on it?

Also, let's remove the braces for the single statements[3].
