Hi! Joe

What are the status of these patches?
"[PATCH v2] checkpatch: fix can't check for too long invalid commit id"
"[PATCH v6] checkpatch: add support to check 'Fixes:' tag format"
"[PATCH v2] checkpatch: allow commit description spans across three lines"

This is a ping message, maybe you have forgot them?
