Avoid having "This patch" or "This commit" in the commit message. It is
tautologically useless.

Also, do

$ git grep 'This patch' Documentation/process

for more details.

Call them all "user_xfeatures" to differentiate that it is a function
argument and not our xfeature_* macro and function names.

"Ensure ... by ensuring ..." Simplify pls.
