Looking through git log --oneline, nothing else is jumping out. Another
issue is colons in the message text. I think that I check that the only
spaces have the form ": " to avoid this problem, but I do see:

88db0aa24216 all arch: remove system call sys_sysctl
92e4edba6e2 perf ftrace: Make option description initials all capital letters
(most of the perf patches seem to be like this one)

Here is another with -

27aced19e098 Input: exc3000 - add reset gpio support

Reverts seem to typically have Revert followed by the original subject
line in quotes.
