 But you did introduce warnings, like:

drivers/staging/sm750fb/ddk750_mode.c: In function 'programModeRegisters':
drivers/staging/sm750fb/ddk750_mode.c:87:3: warning: ISO C90 forbids
mixed declarations and code [-Wdeclaration-after-statement]

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
