And now you violate the other coding style rule of too long lines :(

You can just keep sending patches fixing this back and forth, if you
want a never-ending set of patches to be applied, but we don't really
like that.

So the code is ok as-is.

Why is this final ); way over here?

Too long of a line.

Remember, checkpatch is just a "hint", you still have to use your brain
when looking at the output of it.
