My first question would be: What is the problem?  If there is no
problem, don't try to fix it.  If there is a problem, your fix should
contain a decent description of the problem as part of the commit
message.  Even if the patch itself ends up being bad, having a good
problem description with a first stab at a fix serves as a useful bug
report.
