Your subject line needs work, please see how other subject lines are
composed for this subsystem.
Also note, please do not use anything but the drivers/staging/ area of
the kernel for beginning "I'm going to do checkpatch cleanups" type of
"learning to get changes into the kernel" work. That is a great place
to start with this, not in other subsystems where you might have
reviewers who do not care so much about whitespace cleanups like this.
So please learn the process there, and when you have it all working
well, then you could move on to other subsystems and areas of the
kernel, like this one, if you want to.
