I set aside when I raised my initial complaint, and it stayed set aside.

I'll consider it again, but I'm not very enthusiastic about applying
stylistic fixes. We really don't need trivial patch wars over how many
exclamation points belong on a given sentence.

Diego, I'd like to ask you to sit back a bit and think about what you are
really trying to accomplish. Maintainers are busy people, and you place a
demand on their time whenever you post a patch. That time is available in
*very* limited quantities for patches that don't really make the kernel
better. Please think a bit about why you're doing this, and how you might
direct your energy toward creating changes that maintainers actively want
to apply. That will leave everybody better off than nagging people about
cosmetic changes.
