Oddity of the web interface. Edit the url to get a log form a commit

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/log/drivers/staging/iio/accel/sca3000.c?id=2ccf61442ff142d2dde7c47471c2798a4d78b0ad
                                                                    ^^^
Then for more fun you have to deal with another rename

Next bit of log...

It goes all the way..

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/drivers/staging/iio/accel/sca3000_core.c?id=574fb258d63658e4564c32c1940068a3bad666a0

Fixes: 574fb258d636 ("Staging: IIO: VTI sca3000 series accelerometer driver (spi)")

Which was in the initial IIO patch set nearly 11 years ago in the merge window for 2.6.32.

What can I say - I was young and just as capable of writing dumb bugs as I am today :)

I'll get this queued up when I'm on the right computer...

Thanks,

Jonathan
