Subject: checkpatch does not like quoting patch subject with doublequotes
Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2021 20:07:24 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I got the following message from checkpatch:

WARNING: Possible unwrapped commit description (prefer a maximum 75 chars per line)
commit 7c6986ade69e ("powerpc/stacktrace: Fix spurious "stale" traces in raise_backtrace_ipi()")

ERROR: Please use git commit description style 'commit <12+ chars of sha1> ("<title line>")' - ie: 'commit 7c6986ade69e ("powerpc/stacktrace: Fix spurious "stale" traces in raise_backtrace_ipi()")'
commit 7c6986ade69e ("powerpc/stacktrace: Fix spurious "stale" traces in raise_backtrace_ipi()")

total: 1 errors, 1 warnings, 7 lines checked

NOTE: For some of the reported defects, checkpatch may be able to
      mechanically convert to the typical style using --fix or --fix-inplace.

0001-powerpc-stacktrace-Include-linux-delay.h.patch has style problems, please review.

NOTE: If any of the errors are false positives, please report
      them to the maintainer, see CHECKPATCH in MAINTAINERS.

AFAICT there is not problem with the way the patch is quoted but rather
checkpatch is confused by the patch subject containing double quotes.

Can you please have a look?
