Jan, it seems it is not a good idea to modify the Xen coding style
without investigation of the issue first. It takes some effort to
automate every such (or similar) exceptional code formatting case. So
it looks we could find a better option, than just adding one more
exception to Xen coding style, at least worth to investigate it first.

I expected you to have some arguments why it cannot be fixed in the
diff or other tools.
The examples I meant are any real patches code examples to be used for
this investigation.
Hopefully, you care about it, as you mentioned previously.
