Then they should change CodingStyle.

Better will be start use indent.

Style issues like "sizeof(struct foo)" versus "sizeof(*bar)" in memory allocation are beyond what indent can and should do.

Coding style seems is Linux case kind of never ending story.

It's not a big deal in my limited experience, as far as there is a documented consensus.

Yes. Or subsystem maintainers who didn't already could adopt the documented style. Or correct the document where it doesn't reflect consensus.
