For anyone interested, I've prototyped up my proposed solution.  I
personally use patman (a tool hosted in U-Boot) for managing my
upstream posting so I have posted a patch to patman that encodes the
Change-Id in Message-Id.  We will see what folks there think of it.
There are at least a handful of other people who use patman for Linux
but lots in U-Boot so maybe it'll be a good way to get a feel for
this.

Feel free to look at:

https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1154833/

The actual Message-Id generated there was:

20190828132723.0.RFC.Ie6289f437ae533d7fcaddfcee9202f0e92c6b2b9@changeid

Thomas Gleixner: I tried using the python library to generate a
Message-Id but it produced something that was way too long and I felt
that would be a showstopper when a maintainer in Linux tried to
provide a "Link:" to one of my patches.  I have generated my own
format based on what Rob Herring seems to do (an example Message-Id I
see from him is "20190827223716.GA31605@bogus").

Theodore Ts'o: Hopefully what I have done counts as a prototype for you.

Christian Brauner: I am not planning on posting any Documentation
changes.  I feel like it's sane to get a feel for this right now and
see how people like it.


I didn't CC everyone on this list on my patch, but it should be easy
for anyone interested to subscribe to the U-Boot mailing list.
