Actually, what my code use is tabs with a tab stop of 8 followed by
enough spaces (< 7) to align function parameters and to align
open/close parenthesis in C expression line wrap.

The main problem seems to be that Chapter 9 in
Documentation/CodingStyle is written by someone who feels that since
vi makes it easy to only align parameters using tabs, that everybody
should do it the same way as vi. I'm simply challenging Chapter 9 as
being canon. I certainly ignore it, and as a maintainer I tend to
accept either vi or emacs-style indentations with respect to
parameters and C expressions.
