In the Olden Days, we could easily spot code which needed auditing
simply by looking at the (lack of) coding style. But then someone
decided that the most important attribute of good code was the nature of
the whitespace within it. And they wrote a tool.

For a while, this made it really hard for us maintainers to tell which
incoming patches we should actually read! Fortunately, the
Anti-whitespace crusaders have come full circle: we can now tell newbie
coders by the fact that they obey checkpatch.pl.

Thanks,
