I've weighted all the checkpatch warnings and errors introduced by these
patches and I've found them fair versus Linux coding style guide.

If these are the only barriers to acceptance then I'll consider an
update if Herbert agrees with the patches:

This line is 82 chars long. I find it slightly more readable than the

"The limit on the length of lines is 80 columns and this is a strongly
preferred limit [...] unless exceeding 80 columns significantly
increases readability and does not hide information"

Now this is a debate about "slightly" vs "significantly". Have fun.
