Eh, I'm talking about linux/kernel/* etc, so it's really Andrew and
Linus who'd have to be OK with it.

If you can fix those, I'd be happy to adjust the ia64 files to fit
within 80 cols.

I don't particularly like 100 cols.  I'd be happy if all (major) Linux
kernel files fit into 80 cols, it's just that in reality, you need 100
cols to look at most important kernel files.
