For me, NAK also needs reasons.

And this issue is about "coding styles issue", I am not quite sure
whether trivial patch maintainer and mm maintainer are also the
maintainer for "coding styles issues".

I guess they are related with this patch, and their NAKs' reason are: mm
and trivial don't care about this coding style issue, is it correct?

OK, thanks, it is really one proof for us. :-)

I guess, the file above almost means: except whitespace/indentation,
trivial patches don't consider about the coding styles issues. But can
we say coding styles issues are not issues in our kernel? (I guess not)

If we can not say, I guess one of your suggestion is useful (maybe be
as your suggestion): find one suitable member (I guess I am not), run
"checkpatch -file" under "./include", and fix all reported issues.
