Subject: patch "tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Replace explicit alignment with ALIGN" added to driver-core-testing


This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Replace explicit alignment with ALIGN

to my driver-core git tree which can be found at
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/driver-core.git
in the driver-core-testing branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will be merged to the driver-core-next branch sometime soon,
after it passes testing, and the merge window is open.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: tools/firmware/ihex2fw: Replace explicit alignment with ALIGN

(X + 3) & ~3 is the same as ALIGN(X, 4), so replace all of the
instances of the formwer in the code with the latter. While at it,
introduce a helper variable 'record_size' to avoid duplicating length
calculatin code. No functional change intended.
