Thanks Kuba, I'm not trying to be a hard ass, but the commit message
didn't say why he's making the change, and if I bisect back to this
and see "sync" as the commit message, I think I'd be stuck chasing
"sync to what?"

I guess that his changelog could just say what you said?

Proposed:
Sync the uAPI headers so that userspace and the kernel match. These
changes match the updates to the files in the tools directory that were
already updated by commits:
78a3ea555713 ("net: remove comments on struct rtnl_link_stats")
0db0c34cfbc9 ("net: tighten the definition of interface statistics")
