Subject[GCC] gcc vs. indentation
	The story begun when i`ve started to make indentation fixes in the DAC960 driver.
And in order to ensure i didn`t broke anything i was checking a diff between the
resulting object files.

Surprisingly enough i`ve realised soon that indeed some indentation changes
give gcc a reason to produce different code.

One of the cases is below, all three of them are in the attached .tar.gz file.
The code in question is the 2.5.72-bk1 kernel, however there was no changes
in the related code for some time, so plain .72 should be safe.

The examples are in the form of pairs of a C diff, and a "objdump -d" output diff.

The C diff:

Thats it.
The point is i thought and hoped that gcc abstract syntax tree constructor is
indentation invariant, and that is seemingly not true.
