It is recommended to put the driver name in the subject,
for instance: 

[PATCH] ks8851: Fix missing mutex_lock/unlock

See the driver log for more examples.

It's weird to look a mutex being hold to call netdev_info().
Perhaps change it to look like below as the netdev_info()
does a lot more things and holding the lock during that
seems to be a waste.
