Yes, everybody's time is very expensive. So why are you wasting it
all with a "last post wins" style of argumentation? A maintainer has
NAK'ed it. Please drop this.

There is a reason why whitespace fixes are often consider to have
extreme negative value, and a deep suspicion that people are doing
this just to say that they have a patch in the kernel, perhaps in the
misapprehension that this will help them get a job.

Let me say that if I were a hiring manager, and I did a Google search
on a potential job application, and came across a thread like this, my
reaction would be extremely negative.
