Re: Write and Submit Your First Kernel Patch

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Thx junio for that analyse!

So what I understand from what you have said is that the problem is
not in format-patch since that I see white space from git show $commit
?!:

history: I was trying to remove coding style problem in
drivers/staging/comedi/drivers/pcl726.c

./scripts/checkpatch.pl --terse --file
drivers/staging/comedi/drivers/pcl726.c        #### NO warning after
removing problems
### git commit -a
                      # was done after that
### git format-patch -s -n master..pcl726

kapare@vostro:~/linux-kernel-patch/linux-2.6$ git show $commit >
TEST.git.show.commit      #### see whitespace in vim
kapare@vostro:~/linux-kernel-patch/linux-2.6$ ./scripts/checkpatch.pl
--terse --file TEST.git.show.commit
TEST:19: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:27: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:35: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:45: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:55: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:60: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:67: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:69: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:80: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:106: ERROR: trailing whitespace
TEST:113: ERROR: trailing whitespace

So what am I doing wrong? Any clues? see attachment you ask

thx
