What do you mean exactly by "conformant"? Why would you not write
"conformant" patches to start with? You don't want to have to do double
the work by writing code in the wrong style first, and then having to go
back and rewrite it.
Anyway, be careful about RFC patches, you want to make it as easy as
possible for others to review your work, so don't give anyone an excuse
to _not_ read it.
