Sure, will do.

Hmm..that becomes rather long, and seems complex for the already hard to read
?: operator? Let's see, this:

if (!strncmp(id, ACPI_SIG_HMAT, 4))
return ((struct acpi_hmat_structure *)entry)->type;
else
return ((struct acpi_subtable_header *)entry)->type;

becomes

return strncmp(id, ACPI_SIG_HMAT, 4)) ?
((struct acpi_subtable_header *)entry)->type :
((struct acpi_hmat_structure *)entry)->type;

Hmm...we only save one line, and I personally find that a lot harder to read,
but that being said if you feel strongly about it I'll make the change.
