    standardize brace placement in struct definitions

    jrn committed with gitster
    In a struct definitions, unlike functions, the prevailing style is for
    the opening brace to go on the same line as the struct name, like so:
     struct foo {
    	int bar;
    	char *baz;
    Indeed, grepping for 'struct [a-z_]* {$' yields about 5 times as many
    matches as 'struct [a-z_]*$'.

     Heretic people all over the world have claimed that this inconsistency
     is ...  well ...  inconsistent, but all right-thinking people know that
     (a) K&R are _right_ and (b) K&R are right.
