Here's a suggestion. If a few spaces bug you that much then instead of
complaining about it and posting checkpatch results deal with the file

Wait until the patch goes in and send a follow up patch that fixes up the
file to fit codingstyle. There's no point whining about the bits a patch
touches when the file wasn't in that format before, but if you've got
nothing better to do then doing a pass over the whole file *is* useful.

(Plus it gets a patch to your name ;))

Checkpatch whines on files that simple don't follow style are usually
best ignored because they make the file formatting less internally
