Thank you for your guidance, I will fix it in v3

In addition, I am a bit confused about the patch submission, and hope to 
get everyone's answer.
   I made this patch based on the master branch. But as in conflict at 
https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/5/10/413, my patch will inevitably conflict. 
Should I modify to make patch based on "linux-next" branch to avoid 
conflict, or other branches?

Thanks
Xiaoming Ni
