This is not really helpful, David.

Andrei's question was fully reasonable here, i.e. the Documentation/CodingStyle is the only binding reference given to potential contributors -- the common 'how-to-contribute-kernel-patches' docs non-24/7-kernel-folks usually find and follow on the way preparing patches end exactly there.

I recently learned the hard way when my patches were ignored just because of some missing spaces. That would be perfectly fair if some formal rules were broken, but not telling people about additional informal ones is not motivating.

I might be fully blind and just missed the related coding style document that covers the issues discussed here. But even then your answer should be 'RTFM' instead of just ending the conversation.

Cheers, Zefir
