If there are no further changes to the patch/changelog then it is not
necessary. The maintainer usually just grabs ackes and reviewed-bys
from the list.

I would really like to understand that...

this seems unrelated. I would try to report this and clarify in the llvm

I would go with the following wording.
Clang and its -Wunsequenced emits a warning

While it is not clear to me whether the initialization code violates the
specification (6.7.8 par 19 (ISO/IEC 9899) looks it disagrees) the code
is quite confusing and worth cleaning up anyway. Fix this by reusing
sc.gfp_mask rather than the updated input gfp_mask parameter.
