Documentation says:
"A Fixes: tag indicates that the patch fixes an issue in a previous commit. It
is used to make it easy to determine where a bug originated, which can help
review a bug fix. This tag also assists the stable kernel team in determining
which stable kernel versions should receive your fix. This is the preferred
method for indicating a bug fixed by the patch. See :ref:`describe_changes`
for more details."

I do not this this helps here as this does not help distros etc
I would say this is incremental development which improved a case not
done properly earlier, unless you would like this to be backported.. In
that case it helps folks...
