And this is after I pushed back on this patch series 5 times or so.

You qlogic guys, can you see why I give you such a hard time with
your patch submissions? Even after I ask you to correct all of the
most obvious problems, there is still garbage like this that shows
up in your changes.

What in the world do I have to do, other than push back on your
submissions even harder, to keep crap like this from happening
in the future?

Tell me.

You, as a group, are the absolute worst networking driver submitters.

This is a real problem because you submit large bodies of code that 1)
nobody wants to review and 2) has a very small user base. So you
impart an extremely large burdon upon me, in particular, because I'm
the only person that actually reviews your code at all.
