I don't mind if you send a Fixes tag even for a trivial fix like this.

It's not incorrect, this commit does fix that other commit.

It's probably true that we wouldn't backport a trivial fix like that,
but having the Fixes tag means we could if we wanted to. And if we don't
want to backport it then it's harmless extra information.
