sheer bulk: include/asm-ia64/sn/sn2/shub_mmr.h
most typedefs: include/asm-ia64/sn/sn2/shub_mmr_t.h
bizarre (and ugly) idiom: fs/devfs/*.c
just plain ugly: arch/i386/kernel/cpu/mtrr/generic.c
really crusty-looking: drivers/char/*tty*.c
terrifying ultra-legacyness: drivers/ide/legacy/hd.c
fishiness: drivers/usb/serial/pl2303.c
why so much code?: drivers/char/dz.c
highly cleanup-resistant: mm/slab.c
unusual preprocessor games: kernel/cpufreq.c
contrived inefficiency: fs/proc/inode.c:proc_fill_super()
