Yes, but I'd like to change that standard to "two spaces" in all
devicetree.cb files. Actually I sneaked in just that in all the boards
I added the last three years or so, and nobody noticed/complained ;-)

The Config.lb/devicetree.cb files can get _very_ convoluted and very
deeply nested, and one TAB for indentation (plus a comment on many
lines) make it _way_ to wide (definately lots more than 80 characters)
for my taste on many boards. Using two spaces looks much cleaner and
more readable in this case.

(This is an exception! I'm not proposing to do the same in C code or
the like. Only devicetree.cb!)

Thanks, r4767. I added Config.lb et al for now to keep it in abuild,
but it shouldn't be required much longer, oldconfig will soon go away.
