checkpatch.pl from both v2.6.36-rc7 and v2.6.36-rc6 do report warnings.
Looks like those versions flag long lines for pr_warn. Is your version
older or newer ?

Anyway, would it be possible to split the patch into one patch per file ?

I don't know how Jean thinks about it, but in my opinion it would be cleaner,
permit revert on a single patch/file instead of having to revert the entire series,
it would simplify review, and it would make it much easier to cherry-pick 
pieces into other releases if needed.

Thanks,
Guenter
