There are a lot of coding style issues in these patches, I'm only going
to point out one:

Frankly, this is very ugly, even ignoring the standard coding style rules.

First of all, never put the operators at the beginning of the line.
This code not only does that, but it mixes style every other line,
that's terrible.

Secondly, each line of the conditional after the first must line up
at the first column after the openning parenthesis of the if() statement
(or any inner parenthetical grouping the expression is a part of).

You achieve such alignment using the appropriate number of TAB and
space characters necessary to do so, for example:

if (x &&
y &&
z) {
