    [PATCH] ipc/msg.c: clean up coding style
    Clean up ipc/msg.c to conform to Documentation/CodingStyle.  (before it was

breaks fakeroot on Alpha (variously hangs or oopses). Backing it out
of 2.6.19-rc4 fixes the issue. Is it possible that this change (which
clearly does change semantics) was made in error?
