this change makes the backport to 4.x a PITA.
Given that this is not a functional change but purely 'whitespace",
i'd postpone it to the time when we declare 4.x unsupported,
or at least 'IPFW1 on 4.x unsupported'.

If you really really need to commit something of this, please
leave the kernel part alone.
