Technically the braces you remove in this patch _are_
unnecessary. But, I think the driver is more confusing
with them removed.

In a lot of places there is quite a bit of code between
where the opening and closing braces would be.
Granted, a lot of them are due to the wordy comments
but some are in places like:

	for (...)
		if (...) {
			...
		}

There aren't too bad but the one like this are:

	If (...)
		If (...)
			...
		else
			...
	else
		...

The nested if/else blocks are easy to break.

Just my two cents...
Hartley
