When running this on drivers/base/bus.c, it says that the .o files are
different, when the diffstat for what makes them different is only
whitespace.

I did the following:

$ scripts/reformat_with_checkpatch.sh drivers/base/bus.c

Ignore the first set of things it tries to commit by answering N to the
"Would you like to commit these changes".

Then the second thing it tries to change in the file says that there is
a .o file difference.

Yet the diff is below, I don't see how this happens.  Is this due to
there being some old temp file around because I did not accept the first
set of changes?

thanks,

greg k-h
