Somewhat arbitrary and unscientific, but between

    git grep -e '[^f]([a-z_ ]* \*)[^ ]' -- \*.c | wc -l
    $ git grep -e '[^f]([a-z_ ]* \*) ' -- \*.c | wc -l

I see that we favor "(struct blah *)apointer" over "(int *)
apointer".  Many hits in the latter grep come from compat/
that are borrowed pieces of code we tend not to style-fix.

The leading [^f] is crudely excludes "sizeof(typename *)"; it does
not change the resulting picture in a major way, though.
