[ofiwg] linux coding style question, or what is the libfabric interpretation of "resembles"

HI Folks,

A question has come up about how closely the libfabric code should adhere
to the linux coding style

We've run a perl script
checks for adherence to the linux coding style
against libfabric and it complains a lot.

The question is, how closely do we want to adhere to the linux coding style?

Should we consider adding a pre-commit hook that does style checking?
I could see this might also reduce time with PR review nit picking if the
reviewer(s) knew the that commits had to pass such a code style checking
