If you look at Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst, you'll see
that changelog text should be phrased in the imperative mode; no "this
patch". I tend not to be too fussy about that, but some maintainers
will reject a patch out of hand for that, so it's a good thing to learn
to avoid.

This is interesting (I'd never heard of the Linux Kernel Foundation),
but it's not really relevant for the kernel development history. If you
want to put this kind of information in a submission, put it after the
"---" line so that it doesn't end up being committed with the patch.

I have gone ahead and fixed up these things and applied your two
patches, thanks.
