See [2] for a recommend reading on writing commit messages.
Your patches should also include a Signed-off-by line with your name and
email address. If you're not the patch's original author, you should
also gather S-o-b's by them (and/or whomever gave the patch to you.) The
significance of this is that it certifies that you created the patch,
that it was created under an appropriate open source license, or
provided to you under those terms. This lets us indicate a chain of
responsibility for the copyright status of the code.
We won't reject patches that lack S-o-b, but it is strongly recommended.
