The efficiency and comments part read like a tl;dr version of Kernighan & Pike The Practice of Programming[1], which, I might add, is an excellent read. As for coding conventions, I quite like OpenBSD's (man style)[2], which are also present on FreeBSD. Though I rarely write C these days, I have to read some every now and then, and code from BSD projects following those conventions feels very readable.
