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
