This simple case is a reasonable change.  A few minor points though.
Firstly, for a given subsystem please look at other patches to identify
the standard formatting used in patch titles.

Secondly make sure you don't make unconnected changes.  Here there
is a whitespace change that should not be here.

Please don't make unconnected white space changes.
