    SubjectA CodingStyle suggestion
    Hi all,

    In CodingStyle Chapter 16 "Function return value and names", why not
    adding a comment about the favorable community way of checking the return
    value. ie:

    ret = do_method();
    if (ret) {
    /* deal with error */

    and not other ways like:

    if (do_method()) or if ((ret = do_method()) > value) ...

    A patch is ready if the replies are positive.
