[PATCH] This commit fixes the error generated due to the wrong indentation which does not follow the codding style norms set by Linux-kernel and space- bar is used in place of tab to give space which causes a visual error for some compilers

Your subject line is very odd.

And why are you trying to change coding style issues in core kernel

Please start this type of work in drivers/staging/ where it is wanted,
not in other areas of the kernel where it is not good to try to learn
the process.

good luck!
