v2: fixed subject line

The return type of wait_for_completion_timeout is unsigned long not
int. This patch fixes up the declarations only.

Patch was compile tested only for x86_64_defconfig + CONFIG_X86_VSMP=y
CONFIG_HYPERV=m, CONFIG_FB_HYPERV=m

Patch is against 3.19.0-rc5 -next-20150123

Why didn't you set the text above as the patch description (which is
empty at the moment)?

basically because the one-line is sufficient to understand the patch
and the rest of the information is not relevant for the git log but only
for the review

if you think it is necessary to understand the patch I'll move it and
resubmit.

thanks for your review !

thanks - will resend it then - assumed that the one-line would do for this
patch.

thx!

You didn't have one line, you had no description. Patch subject is not
patch description. In the minimal case, the description should have the
same text as the subject, but usually it's better to have a bit more
text in the description.

Well, a good description is not only about understanding the code in the
patch. It may contain information like which platform/setup this issue
happened on, are the any possible side effects, or whatever might be
relevant for someone looking at the patch years later.

yup - but it seemed to me that the information on the build
config and kernel version details would not really be relevant for
this cleanup patch - so if I got your right the description line should
have gone up and the config/kernel info stays below "---".

Just resent it - hope this is correct now.

thx!
