I hate to break it to you, but you actually need to know how the
compiler works for you to be able to write good code. Ignoring all the
great stuff that the compiler does for you makes your code worse.

Are you saying that you're ignoring long-established kernel coding style
conventions because of your personal beliefs? That seem, um, like an
approach that's unlikely to help your code get accepted.

Yes, compile it again and run it again.

But, seriously, it's a quick exercise. I can help make you some spare
time if you wish. Just let me know.
