I don't care about trailing whitespace, but I know what you mean. I usually set my diff options to "-b" and "core.whitespace" to "-trailing-space" so git also
doesn't care.

My editor is set to "do not remove trailing whitespace", but you're right, somehow the trailing ws in Kconfig and xtensa_api.h have been removed. Strange, I
can't explain that… maybe a git feature I don't know about?
