Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/6] KVM: X86: Don't use BIT() macro in UAPI headers

Heh, I think it goes without saying that the code was introduced by a previous
patch, unless you've invented a time machine, in which case we should talk...

Linking to the patch isn't helpful/desirable in this case because it doesn't
provide any info about when the commit actually landed in the kernel.  And
depending on the whims of the maintainer, what was posted may not exactly match
the code that was commited.

What you want is a Fixes: tag that points at the offending commit.  The Fixes:
tag will also get the fix picked up for stable kernels, though in KVM we often
explicitly add "Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org" (though IIRC tglx prefers not to have
the explicit Cc).

Anyways, the changelog can simply be something like:

  Replace BIT() in KVM's UAPI header with an open coded equivalent.  BIT() is
  not defined in the UAPI headers and its usage may cause userspace build errors.

  Fixes: fb04a1eddb1a ("KVM: X86: Implement ring-based dirty memory tracking")
