Hello again Shreeya.

The subject isn't really quite appropriate as you
are not doing this space around operator addition
for the entire subsystem.

IMO, the subject should be:

[PATCH] staging: rtl8188eu: rtw_mlme: Add spaces around operators

because you are only performing this change on this
single file.

If you were to do this for every single file in the
subsystem, you could have many individual patches with
the exact same subject line.

And it would be good to show in the changelog that you
have compiled the file pre and post patch without object
code change.

Also, it's good to show that git diff -w shows no source
file changes.

When I try this using checkpatch --fix-inplace, I get
21 changes against the latest -next tree.

What tree are you doing this against?
