You really should've preserved the tags from Suren and Johannes, I've
added them. Also the Fixes: line shouldn't wrap and should be attached
to the other tags (no whitespace between), also fixed that. And I've
also made another few small edits.

Please pay attention to these things for next time.

Patch can be found in my queue and should show in tip/sched/core
somewhere on Monday if the robots don't hate on it.
