Andy's the checkpatch guy to verify this but:

There's a separate test for spaces that should be tabs.

If you had a 64 space indent and ran the silly script,
it'd complain about the spaces.

If you converted the spaces to tabs and ran the silly
script again with --strict, it'd complain about the
indent depth.
