That is multiple things done in the same patch, please break this up
into a patch series, only doing one "logical" thing per patch.

Note, generic cleanup patches like this are tough to get done in the
"real" part of the kernel, I strongly recommend you start out in
drivers/staging/ where these types of changes are welcomed.  Get
experience there and then move out into other areas of the kernel if you
want to, that way you don't annoy developers/maintainers with basic
errors like this.

good luck!
