I'm not sure a Fixes: tag is necessary here? 65294c1f2c5e
works fine without this change, and it's not something we
would need to backport into stable kernels.

This is more of a clean up patch.

Fixes is not really related to backports or stable.  I would agree that
this isn't a bug but just a cleanup, but the problem is that other
people want Fixes tags for everything...

Yesterday I sent a cleanup patch and I almost put the Fixes tag under
the --- cut off but in the end I just deleted it...  It's hard to know
what the right thing is.

Thanks, applying for 5.5.

It doesn't have a stable cc and it's pretty obvious cleanup, so I guess
there's no harm in it.

I could go either way.  But I'll leave the patch as is unless someone
comes up with a clear policy.
