My opinion is that it should have the same treatment as any new
code added - adhere to the StyleGuide.

That is the same way as it is done in the Linux code - if somebody
wants to add an out-off-tree driver that has diverged from the StyleGuide
- well, one has to fix it up.

This is what I did for Xen blkback, pciback, pcifront, and I am sure that
is what Ian C did for Xen netback as well.
