Our releases look to flip-flop between keeping or discarding the date
and title of the referenced qemu-trad commit. I think with the hash
replaced by a tag, the commit's date and title would better also be
purged.

I've been noticing this inconsistency repeatedly because I simply re-use
version update patches for the stable trees - the context mismatch
results in a such updated patch to then not apply, due to said flip-
flopping. For 4.15 I'm inclined to drop the two offending lines perhaps
while updating the version to 4.15.1-pre.

Ian (and others), any thoughts here either way?

Thanks, Jan

If I don't hear back by Wednesday, I guess I'll take the lazy consensus
route and put this in.
