A comment like this should go below the "---" line; otherwise it has to
be edited out when the patch is applied.

Please keep changelogs below the 80-column limit. Some maintainers will
also get grumpy with you for not using the imperative form ("Fix two
typos") here.

Just about *all* maintainers will get grumpy with you for top posting;
never do that. Especially not for patches, but just don't do it ever.

I've fixed these things up and applied (what appears to be) your first
