Just trivial style notes and a typo

This is a pretty long line.  It doesn't use normal kernel spacing
style and it has unnecessary parentheses.

Maybe:

#define hash_min(val, bits)						\
	(sizeof(val) == 4 ? hash_32(val, bits) : hash_long(val, bits))

Maybe use a struct hlist_head *last_hash_entry as a loop variable

{
	struct hlist_head *eo_hash = hashtable + HASH_SIZE(bits);

	while (hashtable < eo_hash)
		INIT_HLIST_HEAD(hashtable++);
}

The compiler might generate the same code anyway...
