I can't add the "Signed-off-by" tag by myself. However, if you are in the
path to forward the patch to the mainline (maintainer's tree), you can
add by yourself the "Signed-off-by" tag before send a "pull" to Linus.
See [1] for more information.

If you don't have a maintainer's tree, you can give (as a maintainer) an
"Acked-by" tag that then I can add to the patch. More info in [2].

Sorry, but if I use only one tab, the parameters description are not all
aligned.

Sorry, but I don't understand. Do you prefer something like?:

diff --git a/drivers/virt/acrn/acrn_drv.h b/drivers/virt/acrn/acrn_drv.h
index fcc2e3e5232a..5663c17ad37c 100644

 };

 /**

Moreover, for the v2 I will fix the typo "syze->size" in the subject as
suggested Kees ;)
