Hello James,

This description looks incomplete to me. It doesn't mention the race
condition that was introduced by patch "scsi: mpt3sas: Fix secure
erase premature termination". Please also follow the guidelines from
process/submitting-patches.rst for the "Fixes:" tag. A quote from that
document: "please use the 'Fixes:' tag with the first 12 characters
of the SHA-1 ID, and the one line summary". Please also fix the
spelling of the adapter name "mp3sas".

Thanks,

Bart.
