Hi Mark,

If you look at the git log for reverted commits, the vast majority
of them follow _this_ style.  From 5.3 back to the start of current
git history, there are 3665 commits with "Revert" in their subject
line, 3050 of those start with "Revert" with no subsystem prefix.

It seems that there are a small number of subsystems that want
something different, ASoC included.  That will be an ongoing problem,
people won't remember which want it when the majority don't.

Maybe the revert format should be standardised in some manner?
