Hi, this is your Linux kernel regression tracker.

That way regzbot will miss the tags and not associate the fix with the
regression. You can leave it like that and add these, as explained in
the kernel docs (see for example submitting-patches.rst):


Or your remove the two footnotes and do it like this:

Thx for trying to do the right thing, but that didn't work out, as
"Link:" doesn't need a "#regzb". Maybe regzbot should handle this, not
sure, will keep it in mind.

Anyway, let's make regzbot aware of this thread, as you intended (thx

#regzbot ^backmonitor

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

P.S.: As the Linux kernel's regression tracker I deal with a lot of
reports and sometimes miss something important when writing mails like
this. If that's the case here, don't hesitate to tell me in a public
reply, it's in everyone's interest to set the public record straight.
