I know it's a little thing, but given a choice between

a) changelogs which use capital letters and fullstops and

b) changelogs which do not,

I think a) gives a better result.

I note that none of these patches added a #include <linux/mutex.h>.  Each C
file which uses mutexes should do that, rather than relying upon accidental
nested includes.  I hope you're checking for that.
