Versioning comment typically goes below "---" and not part of
commit message.

I like them to be in the commit message most of the time.

Especially for patch series header postings.

Series header I have seen it followed but not in patch commit since
it goes into kernel git history.

Later if someone reviews the patch and says "why didn't they do X" and
if it says in the version history text "don't do X based upon feedback
from developer Y" that helps a lot.

I agree the versioning info helps, but didn't know that you like that
to be in commit message of patches as well. Will keep that in mind for
future for netdev list.
