Subject: Re: [PATCH] staging: rtl8723bs: include: use inline functions for
 dvobj_to_dev

How have you chosen the names at the beginning of the subject line?  The
other patches on this file don't have the word "include:" in the subject.
Please see the section "Following the Driver commit style" of the tutorial
to see what to do.
