The '=' certainly should go on the first line.  That one doesn't
need to be in CodingStyle because it's just obvious.  ;)  Anyway it
is the overwhelmingly prefered way in the kernel with 31449 cases
on the first line and 603 on the second.

For the others, I don't care, but in the kernel the clear preference
is to put them on the first line.  I've redone at least one patch
because someone complained about && placement.
