See (¹) for the reasoning. Ciao, Thorsten (¹) Long story: The commit message would benefit from a link to the regression report, for reasons explained in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst. To quote: ``` If related discussions or any other background information behind the change can be found on the web, add 'Link:' tags pointing to it. In case your patch fixes a bug, for example, add a tag with a URL referencing the report in the mailing list archives or a bug tracker; ``` This concept is old, but the text was reworked recently to make this use case for the Link: tag clearer. For details see: https://git.kernel.org/linus/1f57bd42b77c Yes, that "Link:" is not really crucial; but it's good to have if someone needs to look into the backstory of this change sometime in the future. But I care for a different reason. I'm tracking this regression (and others) with regzbot, my Linux kernel regression tracking bot. This bot will notice if a patch with a Link: tag to a tracked regression gets posted and record that, which allowed anyone looking into the regression to quickly gasp the current status from regzbot's webui (https://linux-regtracking.leemhuis.info/regzbot ) or its reports. The bot will also notice if a commit with a Link: tag to a regression report is applied by Linus and then automatically mark the regression as resolved then. IOW: this tag makes my life a regression tracker a lot easier, as I otherwise have to tell regzbot manually when the fix lands. :-/ P.S.: As a Linux kernel regression tracker I'm getting a lot of reports on my table. I can only look briefly into most of them. Unfortunately therefore I sometimes will get things wrong or miss something important. I hope that's not the case here; if you think it is, don't hesitate to tell me about it in a public reply. That's in everyone's interest, as what I wrote above might be misleading to everyone reading this; any suggestion I gave they thus might sent someone reading this down the wrong rabbit hole, which none of us wants. BTW, I have no personal interest in this issue, which is tracked using regzbot, my Linux kernel regression tracking bot (https://linux-regtracking.leemhuis.info/regzbot/). I'm only posting this mail to get things rolling again and hence don't need to be CC on all further activitie wrt to this regression. Ohh, and feel free to ignore the following lines, they are meant for regzbot: #regzbot ignore-activity #regzbot ^backmonitor: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20211118132556.GD334428@darkstar.musicnaut.iki.fi/ #regzbot ^backmonitor: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/
