So what? Is it called from this driver or?

I did below.

Yeah, I know people are more than often too lazy to think.

if (x < 9)
strobe_timeout = (x + 1) * 40 * MSECS_IN_SEC;
else
strobe_timeout = (400 + (x - 9) * 200) * MSECS_IN_SEC;

Even besides missed whispaces it has redundant parens.

checkpatch is not a silver bullet to get your code clean and nice.

What do you mean? We do not appreciate +LOCs for no (or even nagative!) benefit.

Jacek, if you need rationale behind this comment it's here: the driver
has nothing DT specific and getting rid of OF centric programming
allows to reuse the driver on non-DT platforms w/o touching a source
code.

See above.

So what?

No comments on this?

And this?

So what?

Terminator at compile time even better.

See above.
