No, let's not and just clarify whether or not whitespace
style patches are acceptable patch submissions.

Coding style fragmentation is not otherwise acceptable to me.

nvdimm mandating 2 tab indentation when nvdimm itself is not
at all consistent in that regard is also whitespace noise.

Fine by me.

I do want to avoid documenting per-subsystem coding styles.

How about adding something to MAINTAINERS like:

A:	Accepting patches by newbies or CodingStyle strict

and checkpatch could be changed turn off a bunch of
whitespace rules on a subsystem basis when run with
-f for files or without -f for a patch.

Most of this comes down to whitespace like

	a = b + c

where it hardly matters if the CodingStyle mandated
space around + is used or

	foo = bar(baz,
			qux)

where qux position is not really important.
