Sounds like you're volunteering ;). No one is undertaking such a project that
I know of, though I'm vaguely planning to convert all the K&R-style code to
ANSI sometime after 6.8 ships. This would at least take care of the
"function declaration is not a prototype" warnings.
As usual, the best way to do this would be to open a bug for it, attach the
patch, and await feedback. Best to do it in stages too, for example all of
one class of warning for just the video drivers in one patch, to make it
easier to review.
Don't bother trying to clean up any framebuffer cores besides fb, afb, and
xf8*, since I'm planning to deprecate the rest anyway.
