Ok somewhere is a bug. What is the body an if block, for you? To avoid
that confusion, I termed these "condition" and "code":

if(condition1 || /* if() line */
condition2) { /* continuation line */
code; /* body */
code; /* body */

And I think I made that pretty clear in <>,
which part is what, and how I like things.
In <>, the loop begins then.
Yes, it does not match "(a) only use tabs", but it matches the
rest of kernel code.
