Please use the proper prefix. Run git log on the file and you'll find
it. Also please start the short summary sentence after the prefix with an
upper case letter.

Please format the text proper with a line break around column 70.

Also please refrain from '(defined in kernel/ptrace.c)'. Use sys_ptrace()
which is entirely clear.

Please use an intermediate variable to calculate the index instead of this
weird line break.

Thanks,
