Hi Stephen,

The above fixes tag follows the recommended format except that it is 
followed by a kernel version number. Is there a recommended format for 
embedding the kernel version number in a Fixes: tag? I think that 
information is useful. I haven't found any recommendations for how to do 
that in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst.
