1) There are two macros with gotos, which is a no-no. You could use inline
functions instead or just write out the code where needed.

2) Multiline comments like so:
 * blah, blah

3) Think twice about using trailing comments.

4) The constant defines should be collected in one spot and documented.

5) Use blank lines between all function definitions.

6) Use {} around all if statement blocks

7) Format else like so:
else if (bug) {

8) The file contains hard tabs and trailing whitespace.

9) A number of lines are longer than 80 characters.
