I am trying to start feeding back various patches to do with supporting
the hardware I work on.
The company also decided upon a name change so I thought I would do this
So I moved arch/mips/philips to arch/mips/nxp. I generated a patch I ran checkpatch.pl as Ralf suggested before. I now have pages of errors in the patch - Line over 80 chars - printk must have KERN_ debug level - must have a space after this (, or *) - use tabs not spaces - Do not use C99 comments. To name but a few My question is:If you do a patch and find all these errors is it expected that I fix all these problems, or I just make sure my changes do not make it worse!
