The _t at the end of type names is a POSIX habit of markup for system defined types - this should *NOT* be used in user land programms but is OK for the kernel. However for the ide drivers it's indeed unnecessary code noise.
Polish notation is the anglo-saxon term for a mathematical expression syntax which is avoiding parents by not using an "in between" operator notation but using functional notation instead. It was invented by ?ukasiewich at the beginning of the last century for formal logic and is indeed more convenient there if you start to deal with long expressions.... Just to clarify the terms OK?
