Ian acked your patch already... If you want to clean these up then go
for it. There is no reason Hartley should have to do all the work.

But consider doing more "extensive" cleanups. Instead of just shifting
the comments over in [patch 2/4] you could change the format to kernel
style. Newbies are too timid. Look through the work that Hartley has
done and try copy it.
