This is pointless wrapper and if you don't understand and immediately see
what such code does you shouldn't be allowed near kernel.

"const _ctype" patch should be fine.

It's pretty sad to see so much activity around all sorts of simple and
irrelevant stuff like formatting, printk, pr_debug, printk_once, loglevels etc

I suggest to kernel newbies to find and fix a bug. You'll learn much
more from this exercise.
