You can use uncrustify for that in combination with kdev_format_source.

In the source formatter select the following:
- Language: C++
- Formatter: Custom Script Formatter
  - kdevelop: kdev_format_source

There's a help label how to further fine-tune the formatting rules.
You'll need to create a few files in your source dir.

Works fine for me -- I'm using it in Icemon, too:
  (see files starting with 'format' in the source tree) 

Hope that helps
