I acknowledge the irony you present, but that's because there's no
enforcement on the LLVM side. I frequently forget to run:
$ git-clang-format HEAD~
If you have automated systems that help encourage (ie. force) the use
of the formatter, this helps.
Consider the fact that not all kernel developers run checkpatch.pl.
Is that a deficiency in checkpatch.pl, or the lack of enforcement in
kernel developers' workflows?
