The improved paragraph about line lengths contains a sentence with a
duplicate word: there is one "are" at the end of a line, followed by a
second one at the beginning of the next line.

Drop the first one, as that one is part of the longest line.

Fixes: bdc48fa11e46f867 ("checkpatch/coding-style: deprecate 80-column warning")
Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <>
Perhaps we should aim for no line length limit at all, to make such
typos easier to catch? ;-)
