Ok, this is a bit silly (but also a little fun) :-)

In Documentation/ we have the xterm-linux.xpm image.
Now an XPM image is more or less C code, so I thought it would 
be fun to look at it like that and put on the CodingStyle and 
space use glasses.

I made two changes, none of which change the actual image.
 1) I removed two lines that just had empty comments.
 2) I brought the 'image_name' declaration into line with how 
    we commonly write arrays and pointers.

This saves us an astonishing 12 bytes on the file size ;-)
That's a little less data for every future Linux kernel source 
user to download - that can't be bad.

Ok, ok, so it does have the drawback of being 99,999% churn and 
you could argue that it'll clutter the git history. So if you 
don't apply it I won't hate you (too much) ;-)
