I mean if purpose of these was for me to review the changes you did, it doesn't
help as much as an interdiff does.

That's not what I meant. The patches are good.

There's nothing in Documentation/CodingGuidelines that says multiple piped
commands should be one on each line even if togther the line doesn't exceed 80
characters, nor does it says that file names should be between quotes, even if
the file name can't possibly have spaces.

These are just your arbitrary rules, not the guidelines of the project.

And BTW, the fact that something is a rule doesn't mean it's good; rules change.
