CODING_STYLE: explicitly allow braceless 'else if'

It's already allowed by the example; there are about 1800 instances in the
tree; and disallowing it would lead to

if (a) {
} else {
if (b) {
} else {
if (c) {...

Revert "Get rid of _t suffix"

In the very least, a change like this requires discussion on the list.

The naming convention is goofy and it causes a massive merge problem. Something
like this must be presented on the list first so people can provide input...

With the help of some Limoncino I noted several aspects of the QEMU coding
style, particularly where it differs from the Linux coding style as many
contributors work on both projects.
