Coding style is important, but patches that just fix coding style are a bad thing because they break things like `git blame` and run the risk of introducing new bugs without any net benefit to end users. This goes double for code you don't actually work on regularly or don't completely understand.Linux has tons of issues, fixes for real problems are very welcome.

But coding style bike shedding is just a waste of time.
Why do various software developers bother about coding style specifications
