SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/5] acpi: fix trivial warning
You've made changes to automatically generated files, so all the style 
would be overwritten when next time these files are generated -- all the
files go through
Lindent, and almost all your changes were introduced by it. If you
really want to make
style changes to ACPICA files, try to play with Lindent, so it produce
what you want.
If you have anything beside style patches, please submit them separately
