Normally we put this right at the top of the long log.  Also this commit
ID appears bogus - it does not exist in mainline.

Also it seems very odd that the block of Signed-off lines are stuck in
the middle of the long log.

The version information is important, and shouldnt be hidden down here.
If you put it within the [PATCH ....] square bracket section, the
maintainer/merger person will see it and the "git am" will throw it away
once applied.
