SubjectRe: [PATCH 04 of 66] define MADV_HUGEPAGE
On just the subject, I've been hassled before to add information to the
subject on what is being affected. In this case, it would be just mm:
because you are not affecting any subsystem but others might be

mm: migration: something something

On a practical point of view, it means if you sort mmotm's series file,
you can get an approximate breakdown of how many patches affect each
subsystem. No idea if it's required or not but don't be surprised if
someone complains :)
