Polly did a bulk convert using clang-format if I remember correctly, 
that solved the coding style discrepancies in just a few commits.  They 
now run clang-format on any commit and that keeps things nice and tidy. 
  I'm not familiar with LLD though and its codebase could be much larger 
than that of polly at the time...
