Kernel coding standard

Kernel coding standard published on kernel.org differs from others by style which is used there. It made me smiled during reading, following lines are copied from it :

"However, if you have a complex function, and you suspect that a
less-than-gifted first-year high-school student might not even
understand what the function is all about"

Overall, there are many "weak" points highlighted there which should be considered.
