There's a number of minor things you pointed out in this review.

Saravana, can you send a follow-on patch for the minor code cleanups
like formatting and the like that was found here?

For that, the link would not be there, correct?

There was comments before about how this is not needed.  Frank asked
that the comment be removed.  And now you point it out again :)

Look at the comment a few lines up, we have to go through all of the
suppliers.

Same response as above :)
