O.k., fine.

No, it uses 4 spaces for each indentation level, this is what the other
files I checked (mostly qemu_*.c, xml.c) use and remote_internal.c even
 * vim: set tabstop=4:
 * vim: set shiftwidth=4:
 * vim: set expandtab:
which is basically what I used for reindenting virterror.c. So the patch
is just to make things consistent with the rest of the c code.
