I have tested it on some "score" files and it made some changes which I don't think are very much in line with the RTEMS coding style. However, it wasn't really clear if we will chage the RTEMS coding style or try to make changes to clang-format to fit the style.

We will likely need to consider our choices carefully. If we can find
a suitably close style that is already well-supported by clang, and
get consensus from the maintainers on a change, then that might be the
best route forward. I think the first thing to do is take the examples
that have been shown by Sebastian that are "close" but not quite
perfect, and identify the cases where they differ with RTEMS style in
order to present for discussion here. If consensus can't be reached to
change the style, then we would need to have a plan for how to improve
the existing tools for what we have.

However, I think there is interest in doing less work on the tool
side, and more work on how to integrate it into our workflows better.
