Just a very small patch! It fixes 3 little coding style problems.

Fair enough, but you need to spend a little time working
on the 'how' of your patch submission.
See Documentation/SubmittingPatches and repost the patch according
to those guidelines.

Also at a quick glance, unless I am very bored I'm unlikely to take
such a minor white space and bracket adjustment patch. If it were
part of a bigger series doing something more interesting I'd be
more interested.

If you want to approach this driver, then feel free but there are
many more major issues within it to be looked at such as ABI
compliance. See Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-bus-iio and friends
and compare the driver with them. Off the top of my head I can't
remember how bad this driver is but I doubt everything is well

Don't feel disheartened, as I would be happy to see more substantial
cleanup patches from you as part of the challenge or otherwise.

Good luck,
