A lot of these changes are borderline beneficial, at best.

You are adding include files to foo.c files that are already included
by lib8390.c already (which the foo.c file includes).  This is
redundant and makes the compiler work harder.  lib8390.c is
designed to work like this.

Your first patch mixes comment formatting with actual code
changes (adding new curly braces and such).

And so on and so forth...

I honestly don't like this patch series at all.

If you were about to add a big new feature to the 8390 code
and wanted to clean it up first before doing so, maybe I'd
be ok with these changes.  But as a pure cleanup, sorry I'm
not going to apply this stuff.
