I believe these days it's also typical to use a 12-character commit
hash when referencing commits; IIRC Linus suggested the following in
your ~/.gitconfig:

        abbrev = 12

... which would yield the following:

$ git log --oneline -1 b716c4ff|cat
b716c4ffc6a2 spi: introduce master->handle_err() callback

... so you'd typically write the following in a commit log:

b716c4ffc6a2 (spi: introduce master->handle_err() callback)
