I suggest adopting the coding style already used in the codebase, and
avoiding any mass-reindent or mass-cleanup patches because they make
merging between different branches impossibly difficult.

To be specific, I think we should continue using tab characters to
indent and braces on newlines after prototypes.  I don't think it's
necessary to copy everything else about the current style, though.
For example:

.. could certainly use some spaces/returns.  But I'd change this in
new code only, not with a giant reformatting of the current code.
