Do we really need to still fix ourselves to a 80 col limit in the
year 2020 ?

Linux increased their max line length to 100 chars and even set
checkpatch.pl to not complain about that limit unless --strict
is given.

80 chars is fine as a "wish list" target, but IMHO the code often
benefits more from exceeding 80 chars, and not wrapping.
