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 some companies. -- Gilles Chanteperdrix.
