Subject: Re: [PATCH] power: reset: ltc2952: remove set variable but unused

> Fixes gcc '-Wunused-but-set-variable' warning:
> drivers/power/reset/ltc2952-poweroff.c:97:16: warning: variable
> ‘overruns’ set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]

I suggest to improve also this commit message.

* Can it be helpful to replace the word “Fixes” by the text
  “An issue was pointed out by the compiler.”?

* How do you think about to add the wording “Thus delete the mentioned variable.”
  to the change description?

* The value of an assigned variable was not reused in this function implementation.
  Should this detail be better represented in the final commit subject?

* Would you like to add the tag “Fixes”?
