In XGIfb_mode_rate_to_ddata() we have:

int B, C, D, F, temp, j;

The A and E variables were removed when the code was refactored. ;P
Places like this are fairly rare in the kernel outside of the staging/
directory.

There are lots of times where a single letter variable name is very
natural.

char c;

C is terse. This is explained in Documentation/CodingStyle.
