right. the point was if you had generated a sha1 of all ones. that would
be kind of neat.

Should have used 0000.. because that is what git uses if there is
'nothing' (e.g. "from 0000.." on git-push).
I decided to nuke the commit id because the patch does not match
the one in my uploaded git tree anymore; and issuing a merge seems
like overkill for x86, so i just sent a cherry patch like this.

hm, it has checkpatch failures - the changes introduce some new 
whitespace damage. Patch looks good otherwise. (please resend against 
latest x86.git)

no, not "All false positives", the first checkpatch failure is a blatant 
ugliness that you introduced:

 ERROR: use tabs not spaces
 #137: FILE: arch/x86/kernel/microcode.c:248:
 +^I^I          EXT_SIGNATURE_SIZE * i;$

because you converted a tab to a sequence of 10 spaces:

-		ext_sig = (struct extended_signature *)((void *)ext_header
-			+ EXT_HEADER_SIZE + EXT_SIGNATURE_SIZE * i);
+		ext_sig = (void *)ext_header + EXT_HEADER_SIZE +
+		          EXT_SIGNATURE_SIZE * i;
                <........>

(the second checkpatch warning is a false positive.)

and i applied your patch before i notified you, but apparently you 
couldnt be bothered to check. Please do not bother to send patches with 
such an attitude, it's just a waste of people's time.

	Ingo

There has been lots and lots of CodingStyle- and checkpatch-related
discussion, each with more or less definite outcome.
Among the threads was:

	"""I think that my proposal of using tabs as logical indents
	only (as Xav put it) and spaces for decorative alignment
	provides the best of both worlds. One can expand the tabs to
	any number of spaces as one likes and then the trailing
	spaces will work on any editor setup as long as you use
	fixed-width font. That's not considered "correct" as per
	checkpatch but works much better for me."""

	( http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/11/12/19 )

If you disagree with this style proposal (which is neither allowed nor 
forbidden according to CodingStyle; and taking checkpatch as a 
master-solution just seems wrong), then please say so (you did) and I 
will make a special exception for all submissions to code which 
involve you.

The spacing thing is definately a matter for argument elsewhere.  I
cirtainly have no real oppinion on the matter.  As has been said
elsewhere the coding style is not meant to be as everyone likes it, more
a minimally offensive common position generating consistancy out of
caos.

Checkpatch is _meant_ to push you towards the recommendations in
CodingStyle, that is the definative resource; common sense should prevail
over it.  <standard message>checkpatch is a style guide only, think
about its output and be prepared to justify any non-complience.</standard
message>.

The second one is a clear falsie which I believe I have fixed for the
next release, rather over zelous "possible type" detection has fired here.

ERROR: "foo * bar" should be "foo *bar"
#123: FILE: arch/x86/kernel/microcode.c:248:
+                         EXT_SIGNATURE_SIZE * i;

Cheers.
