Opinons vary.

Very few function declaration/definitions in the linux kernel use the
one line per argument style (gnu indent -bfde)

type function(
	type argument1,
	type argument2,
	...
	)
{
	...
}

It probably shouldn't be encouraged.

Always a possibility but probably not a good one here as even
renaming channel_idx to idx doesn't make it < 80 columns
