The above doesn't exceed the 80 character limit. Putting the return
value and the static keyword on a separate line is a pretty common way
to reduce line length.

No it doesn't. The below fits within 80 characters per line just fine:

static int
calculate_tsensor_calibration(const struct tegra_tsensor *sensor,
const struct tsensor_shared_calibration *shared,
u32 *calib)
