It's good if the cover letter makes into the merge commit log.

It's probably just because my git foo is lacking, but merge commit
logs don't seem as discoverable as the actual patch commit logs.  Five
years from now, if I want to learn about pci_iomap_shared() history, I
would "git log -p lib/pci_iomap.c" and search for it.  But I don't
think I would see the merge commit then.
