We use the standard GNU defaults, a la 'indent --gnu-style', for new
code.  However, there is a lot of existing code in there that is K&R.
It was decided that reformatting the code in bulk was a bad idea and
thus as functions are edited over time, they have been slowly evolving
into GNU style.

So, short answer is, if you are editing a function and adding a line
or two, match whatever style you see there.  If you are adding a new
function or significantly changing existing code, use GNU style.
