SubjectRe: [PATCH V2 04/10] x86/resctrl: Set cache line size using new utility

Please write this in active voice: "Move the cache line size computation
to a utility function in preparation... "

And yes, "a utility" solely sounds like you're adding a tool which does
that. But it is simply a separate function. :-)

And in general, that passive voice is kinda hard to read. To quote from
Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst:

"Describe your changes in imperative mood, e.g. "make xyzzy do frotz"
instead of "[This patch] makes xyzzy do frotz" or "[I] changed xyzzy
to do frotz", as if you are giving orders to the codebase to change
its behaviour."

Please check all your commit messages.

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