For the drivers I looked at it doesn't really make too much difference,
I don't think there was any with a really large number of returns.
You can see that in the diffstat for the full changes.

Writing another script is probably not too hard, but the problem
is that I needed a significant amount of manual post processing
(both the select the right files to patch and to get rid
of misplaced newlines and some mismatches in cocci) 
So it's not a fully automated procedure.
