Rough guideline for changelogs is:
- Keep them in the mail body.
- Make sure that someone only reading the changelog (and not the code)
knows what's going on.
"Not-matched vendor/device id" can be anything. Please mention that this
is about PCI ROMs and that the mismatch occurs between the vendor and
device ID stored in the ROM and the PCI vendor and device ID of the
corresponding PCI device.

Of course you can break the line. My point was more about the message
itself than cosmetic linebreaks.
