    SubjectRe: [patch 07/26] Add INIT_ARRAY() to kernel.h (update 2)
    Array initializers in the body of a function causes unbalanced brackets which
    syntax highlighting editors such as vim have problems with. Fix this by creating
    the INIT_ARRAY() macro.

    It is used to declare arguments passed as function parameters such as:
    text_poke(addr, INIT_ARRAY(unsigned char, 0xf0, len), len);

    Changelog :
    - [len] -> []
    - Remove whitespaces.
    - Fixed Jan's suggestion which was not checkpatch.pl-safe.
    - More informative patch header.
