Subject: Re: [PATCH] Drivers: isdn: gigaset: checkpatch cleanup

Dear Tilman,

Thanks for the feedback. I made a lot of mistakes... Sorry for wasting your
time with this patch. I'll work on improving it and dividing it up
into smaller chunks
as recommended  by other kernel developers and will try to fix the issues.

With kind regards,

Bas
