    Same patch, updated. (still just cleans up file_operations struct
    initializations)

    Changes:
    - updated to 2.3.41
    - cleaned up instances of leading spaces rather than tabs
    - removed some benign garbage added the first time
    - removed the 3 files from patch that were accepted
    (arch/i386/kernel/apm.c, drivers/pci/proc.c, fs/udf/file.c)
    - file count is now down from 171 to 168 :)
    - 2429 LOC deleted - 980 LOC added = 1449 less kernel LOC
