I have one. It's in my head. It's called the Linux Kernel C standard. Some
of it is documented in CodinggStyle, others is just codified in existing

That's some totally irrelevant standard that only acts as a rough
guideline. It dosn't know about inline assembly, and it doesn't know about
coding standards, and it allows the most atrocious code. There's even a
contest in making such code - it's called the Obfuscated C Contest, and it
actually encourages using strict ANSI rules.
Me, I don't accept the kind of entries the OCC accepts.
