Thanks for the re-roll...

It's still not clear from this description what "not being displayed
correctly" means. Ideally, the commit message should stand on its own,
explaining exactly what problem the patch is solving, without the
reader having to chase URLs to pages (which might disappear). If you
could summarize the problem and solution in your own words in such a
way that your description itself conveys enough information for
someone not familiar with that problem report to understand the
problem, then that would likely make a good commit message.

It's not at all clear what 'bottom' means. In the original, when the
code was inline, the surrounding context would likely have given a
good clue to the meaning of 'bottom', but here stand-alone, it conveys
little or nothing. Perhaps a better name for this argument would be
'start_at' or 'from' or something.

Hmm, was this tested? If I'm reading this correctly, this strips out
the entire CRLF pair, whereas the original code only stripped the CR
and left what followed it (typically LF) alone. Junio's suggestion was
to enhance this to be more careful and strip CR only when followed
immediately by LF (but to leave the LF intact). Therefore, this seems
like a regression.
