(CCing the che checkpatch maintainers)

checkpatch appears to be wrong for these errors. I suspect it thinks those are
'%' modulo operators (for which the style requires space before/after),
but those are actually part of the asm input and goto target operands.

Most warnings are about some lines over 80 cols. However, the areas where
this happens is due to following the style of already upstream code which
has the final "\" at the end of line sometimes beyond 80 col to accommodate
macros that take a bit of horizontal real estate.

For patch 8, the warning about "availble" being a typo is right. The
style error about space after "asm (" is right as well. Should I send only
this updated patch to you or should I send the whole patchset again ?
