That is a matter of personal taste.
As such, it is up to the maintainer to change it if they want it

If someone else submitted a patch to discard bioset_create_nobvec in
favour of BIOSET_NEED_BVECS and got it accepted, then I would rebase my
series on that. As it is, I'm basing my patches on the style currently
present in the tree.

Of course, if Jens says he'll only take my patches if I change to style
to match your preference, I'll do that.
