SubjectRE: [PATCH] 2.5 Documentation/CodingStyle ANSI C function declarations.

Probably the simplest solution is to make the said tool recognise
a line like...

#pragma KandR

...and have it abort any file where it finds that line with some
sort of warning, perhaps along the lines of...

SanityCheck: Found K&R pragma, ignoring kernel/foobar.c

...or something similar. It would then be simply a case of adding
the said line near the top of whichever source files are still in
K&R format.

Best wishes from Riley.
