    Yeah, sorry 'bout that.
    That's what I get for using a script.
    I did write an intro with more complete description.

    It tries to standardize the style use and it avoids possible
    future checkpatch warnings of:
    char foo[] = "bar"
    char array could possibly be static const.

    There was another use with "%1.1d" somewhere.

    The end result is the same, so I don't really care much
    if this sort of change is applied or not. The possible
    checkpatch message could just be considered noise but
    Mike Frysinger seemed to prefer it, so I thought I could
    try to accommodate him.

    cheers, Joe
