2015-09-09CODING_STYLE: update mixed declaration rulesPaolo Bonzini
Mixed declarations do come in handy at the top of #ifdef blocks. Reluctantly allow this particular usage and suggest an alternative. Reviewed-by: Stefan Hajnoczi <stefanha@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>
2014-08-15CODING_STYLE: Section about conditional statementGonglei
Yoda conditions lack readability, and QEMU has a strict compiler configuration for checking a common mistake like "if (dev = NULL)". Make it a written rule. Signed-off-by: Gonglei <arei.gonglei@huawei.com> Reviewed-by: Eric Blake <eblake@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru>
2014-03-27CODING_STYLE: Section about mixed declarationsEduardo Habkost
We had an unwritten rule about declarations having to be at beginning of blocks. Make it a written rule.

2012-02-10CODING_STYLE: Clarify style for enum and function type namesPeter Maydell
Clarify that enum type names and function type names should follow the CamelCase style used for structured type names. Signed-off-by: Peter Maydell <peter.maydell@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Stefan Hajnoczi <stefanha@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2011-07-29CODING_STYLE: explicitly allow braceless 'else if'Avi Kivity
It's already allowed by the example; there are about 1800 instances in the tree; and disallowing it would lead to if (a) { ... } else { if (b) { ... } else { if (c) { ... } else { if (d) { ... } else { ... } } } } instead of if (a) { ... } else if (b) { ... } else if (c) { ... } else if (d) { ... } else { ... } which is more readable.

2009-10-01Revert "Get rid of _t suffix"Anthony Liguori
In the very least, a change like this requires discussion on the list. The naming convention is goofy and it causes a massive merge problem. Something like this _must_ be presented on the list first so people can provide input and cope with it. This reverts commit 99a0949b720a0936da2052cb9a46db04ffc6db29.

With the help of some Limoncino I noted several aspects of the QEMU coding style, particularly where it differs from the Linux coding style as many contributors work on both projects.
