First of all, please do not top-post when replying to lkml email and
also, when replying, hit reply-to-all so that all the people on CC can
get the answer. I've fixed that now.

For a more detailed discussion on the whole process, take a look at

Documentation/process/

or alternatively at a well-formatted version:

https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/process/index.html

Now to your question: forget the "data type fix" - that will be
addressed when we touch that code at some point anyway. Pure checkpatch
patches only dilute git history and don't really help.

If you really want to get involved, try fixing real
bugs like fixing drivers in staging, for example.
https://kernelnewbies.org/FirstKernelPatch has a very detailed
explanation how to do that.

HTH.

Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
