Re: [PATCH] [media] : Removing warnings caught by checkpatch.pl

Thank you for the patch.
The subject of your commit message should at least contain the name of the
driver. Furthermore, you can mention that the patch originates from warnings
output by checkpatch.pl, but the subject should describe what you fix (in this
case what type of warning).

If the purpose of commit message bodies was to repeat the subject line, we
wouldn't use them :-) Here you should describe why this change is needed, and
possibly how it is performed when the patch is complex (which isn't the case
of this patch).

This breaks the coding style of the driver which aligns function arguments to
the opening parenthesis. You can instead wrap the last line to shorten it.

Lines can be up to 80 characters long, there's no need to wrap them after 52
