Eww, no, not more of this "lets add tabs to align auto variable
declarations".  This is detrimental when you add another variable whose
type is longer than the current indentation - you have to reformat the
entire block.

It's really not worth it.  Stick to just using one space, like the rest
of the kernel code.  Like the code which Linus writes.  And thereby help
to avoid future "pointless churn" whinges.
