Wow, so much arguing just for a Fixes tag.
It is not broken, I know, but it is somehow incomplete as it creates a
stalled Kconfig symbol. And you come-in and fix the situation by
dropping the remaining symbol. So for me it's a fix, no matter how
deeply bogus (or not) the original commit was. It's not an insult, it's
a tag that allows easy parsing. Anyway, that's meaningless. I'll take
it like that.
