Ah damn, looks like this originates from my pseudo code.

I had to fix the fixes tag:

Commit: 847496ccfa22 ("net/ibmvnic: Fix typo in retry check")
	Fixes tag: Fixes: 476d96ca9c ("ibmvnic: Bound waits for device queries")
	Has these problem(s):
		- SHA1 should be at least 12 digits long
		  Can be fixed by setting core.abbrev to 12 (or more) or (for git v2.11
		  or later) just making sure it is not set (or set to "auto").

Applied to net, thanks!
