You should standardized commit references like this instead:

c1c04cea13dc ("gpio: of: Fix logic inversion")

Then please also include a proper Fixes tag.

You can configure an alias for it to make things easier:

git log --abbrev=12 --pretty=format:"%h (\"%s\")"

So what's the plan with this fix? Add this for v5.2-rc cycle,
then revert it later? I'd probably go directly for the proper
fix if possible.
