New coding style for new files?

I think we waste too much time to address coding style issues on newly
contributed code, for example GSoC. I don't know a source code
formatting tool which supports the RTEMS coding style and I think it is
not worth the time to write and maintain such a tool specifically for
RTEMS. Why don't we simply allow an alternative coding style which has a
good code formatter for new source files? I don't propose to reformat
the existing files.
I would simply pick up one of the standard styles supported by
clang-format and declare it as an acceptable coding style for RTEMS.
Then students can pipe their code through it before they send it for
review. This helps to concentrate on the important things to review and
not the white space.
