Yes, first I ran checkpatch directly on the file(mm/page_alloc.c) and fixed all the errors.
It showed me (0) errors.
Then I created a patch using _git format-patch_ and ran checkpatch again on the created patch.
But now it is showing me 1 error.
According to me this error is false positive (irrelevant), because I did not change anything related to the error and also the similar change already exists somewhere else too.
Do you mean, shall I go ahead and submit the patch with this 1 error??
