<shrug> Maybe.

I think there are _way_ too many existing obvious uses where the
statement that follows a conditional is multi-line.

if (foo)
printk(fmt,
args...);

where the braces wouldn't add anything other than more vertical space.

I don't much care one way or another other than Peter's somewhat ambiguous
use of the phrase "coding style".

checkpatch doesn't emit a message either way.
-----------------------------------------
$ cat t_multiline.c
// SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0-only

void foo(void)
{
if (foo) {
pr_info(fmt,
args);
}

if (foo)
pr_info(fmt,
args);

if (foo)
pr_info(fmt, args);
}

$ ./scripts/checkpatch.pl -f --strict t_multiline.c
total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 checks, 16 lines checked

t_multiline.c has no obvious style problems and is ready for submission.
-----------------------------------------

cheers, Joe
