While it is true that one coding style vs. another could be argued for
a long time - the right answer is that the _right_ coding style for code
added to the Linux kernel is Linus' CodingStyle document.

Whether you think the braces here or there look better - consistency
with other code in the same project is very important, and any changes
you get to your code will come in the Linus CodingStyle and this will
result in code that is a mix between your personal style and the official
style and it will be a mess...
