We _should_ have a consistent coding style across the whole kernel,
that's the whole reason for having a coding style in the first place!

The problem is, we all have agreed on the "basics" a long time ago, but
are now down in the tiny nits as to what some minor things should, or
should not, look like.

It might be time to just bite the bullet and do something like
"clang-format" to stop arguing about stuff like this for new
submissions, if for no other reason to keep us from wasting mental
energy on trivial things like this.
