NAK. Go learn C and don't come back until you've done that. If somebody
has told you that you can contribute without knowing the language, they'd
lied - you really can't. And I would *STRONGLY* recommend to stay away
from drivers/staging while you are learning C - it's like trying to use
a public restroom wall as a sex-ed textbook.

While we are at it, it might be a good idea to check if the kernel
builds after your changes and see what errors are produced.
