I don't like hard-tabs either, I guess kernel people are using them to
save disk space, but since Xenomai sources are not large, we have no
reason to use them.
As for braces placement, I used to dislike Xenomai style (where
does it come from anyway, BSD ?), but got accustomed to it; after all,
it is readable. Anyway, I prefer the kernel style, except for the 8
spaces "c-basic-offset" to talk in emacs cc-mode language...
I would also prefer avoiding the stupid naming rules I had to follow in
