Subject: Re: [PATCH 02/12] net: hns3: Destroy a mutex after initialisation
 failure in hclge_init_ad_dev()

> Add a mutex destroy call in hclge_init_ae_dev() when fails.

How do you think about a wording variant like the following?

   Change description:
   The function “mutex_init” was called before a call of
   the function “hclge_pci_init”.
   But the function “mutex_destroy” was not called after initialisation
   steps failed.
   Thus add the missed function call for the completion of
   the exception handling.

Would you like to add the tag “Fixes” to the commit message?

How do you think about to use the label “destroy_mutex” instead?
