Subject[PATCH] checkpatch: Warn on code with 6+ tab indentation
From
Date
Overly indented code should be refactored.

Suggest refactoring excessive indentation of
of if/else/for/do/while/switch statements.

For example:

$ cat t.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{

if (1)
if (2)
if (3)
if (4)
if (5)
if (6)
if (7)
if (8)
;
return 0;
}

$ ./scripts/checkpatch.pl -f t.c
WARNING: Too many leading tabs - consider code refactoring
#12: FILE: t.c:12:
+ if (6)

WARNING: Too many leading tabs - consider code refactoring
#13: FILE: t.c:13:
+ if (7)

WARNING: Too many leading tabs - consider code refactoring
#14: FILE: t.c:14:
+ if (8)

total: 0 errors, 3 warnings, 17 lines checked

t.c has style problems, please review.

If any of these errors are false positives, please report
them to the maintainer, see CHECKPATCH in MAINTAINERS.

Perhaps this is a reasonable alternative.

Another might be to limit variable name length to something
shorter than say 10 characters.
