Ronald, you can check on if it has been received on
the mailing list; I could not find it there after a quick look. Maybe
there was a technical issue when you sent it?

Generally, do not expect that checkpatch cleanup patches are well
received. It would be better if you could actually test the braille
console and find out if it still works properly, or to fix actual
bugs, e.g.,, might list some that are
relevant and can be reproduced easily.

Also, a subject line in capital letters is considered equivalent to
shouting; there is no need to raise your voice here, though.
