It seems sensible for XenLinux code to follow the Linux CodingStyle document 
(although I'm not sure all the drivers do this yet).

Xen-related C code that isn't destined for the Linux kernel itself has a 
different coding style:
* we indent in blocks of 4 spaces and don't use tabs
* { and } are always on a new line, unlike K&R style
* we put a space between an if and the open parenthesis, and between the 
parentheses and the boolean: if ( murble )

There may be a few other things but I can't think of them right now ;-)

Fancy starting a Wiki page to collect coding style information?
