Why start letting subsystems have a free-pass?
Also this would mean that new patches to IB would continue the bad habits.
And I don't need any free pass for RDS either.

I missed V1 of this series but Knut, please don't add
any exceptions for RDS and if there is something needs to
be fixed, we can address it. Once your infrastructure
gets merged, the subsequent fixes can be added.

I agree with this comment at least for net/rds.

Most of these existing messages from checkpatch should
probably be inspected and corrected where possible to
minimize the style differences between this subsystem
and the rest of the kernel.

For instance, here's a trivial patch to substitute
pr_<level> for printks and a couple braces next to
these substitutions.

Thanks Joe. I actually had a similar patch a while back but
since it was lot of churn, and code was already merged,
never submitted it and then later forgot about it.

Will look into it.


in ib_cm, why is one call to ib_modify_qp emitted
with a -ret and the other with a positive err?

Its oversight and will fix that.
