What I generally do is just add a line between the SOB's for cases
like this, ala:

commit 70aacfe66136809d7f080f89c492c278298719f4
Author: Pavel Begunkov <>
Date:   Mon Mar 1 13:02:15 2021 +0000

    io_uring: kill sqo_dead and sqo submission halting
    As SQPOLL task doesn't poke into ->sqo_task anymore, there is no need to
    kill the sqo when the master task exits. Before it was necessary to
    avoid races accessing sqo_task->files with removing them.

    [axboe: don't forget to enable SQPOLL before exit, if started disabled]
