    Why? I routinely ignore specific warnings from checkpatch while paying
    attention to other ones. That's precisely what one should expect if the
    code in question technically violates the common style (or whatever is
    it). I don't think we need exceptions in the checkpatch as they would
    make it less useful and less reliable.
