Subject[PATCH] checkpatch/coding-style: Allow 100 column lines
From
Date
Change the maximum allowed line length to 100 from 80.

Miscellanea:

o to avoid unnecessary whitespace changes in files,
checkpatch will no longer emit a warning about line length
when scanning files unless --strict is also used
o Add a bit to coding-style about alignment to open parenthesis

Coding style is all about readability and maintainability using commonly
available tools.

-The limit on the length of lines is 80 columns and this is a strongly
-preferred limit.

-Statements longer than 80 columns will be broken into sensible chunks, unless
-exceeding 80 columns significantly increases readability and does not hide
-information. Descendants are always substantially shorter than the parent and
