The 80 cols rule is not a hard one and checkpatch should not override
common sense. This is a function which maps commands to buffer lengths
and it should be obvious at a *very* quick glance what it does. And that
is best done if it is written in a tabular manner as we do such things
in other places in the kernel too.

Btw, Brijesh, please space out those statements for even better
