And that back trace is useful because it looks good and occupies a lot of
space in the changelog? There is no value as we already know the call
chain. Back traces are only useful if they show a particular call path of
many possible ones and help to explain the problem.

That's nonsense. This has absolutely nothing to do with that particular
commit. Using the hardcoded 0 physical id is simply wrong since:

commit cf6d445f6897 ("perf/x86/uncore: Track packages, not per CPU data")

Should?

No, it MUST use that. Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst:

Describe your changes in imperative mood, e.g. "make xyzzy do frotz"
... as if you are giving orders to the codebase to change its
behaviour.

I really like your patches, but you might finally start to write real
change logs instead of fairy tales.

Thanks,

tglx
