One more tip about patch formatting:

I reworded the title to:
	memzone: fix unlock on initialization failure

The prefix "memzone" gives the scope of the change.
We decided that memzone is important enough to have its own scope prefix.
You can find other prefixes in the git history.

Then the rest of the title is written in plain english,
detailing more the scope with "on initialization failure".

Hope it helps, and welcome :)
