[PATCH] doc/SubmittingPatches: correct subject guidance




The examples and common practice for adding markers such as "RFC" or
"v2" to the subject of patch emails is to have them within the same
brackets as the "PATCH" text.  Update the description to match this
behaviour, rather than asserting such markers should be after the
closing bracket.

 It is a common convention to prefix your subject line with
 [PATCH].  This lets people easily distinguish patches from other
-e-mail discussions.  Use of additional markers after PATCH and
+e-mail discussions.  Use of additional markers between PATCH and
 the closing bracket to mark the nature of the patch is also
 encouraged.  E.g. [PATCH/RFC] is often used when the patch is
 not ready to be applied but it is for discussion, [PATCH v2],
