Sometimes, when a patch is that invasive, I'll do it in two parts - the
change with wrong indentation, followed by another patch that is
indentation-only.  Much easier to review.

Also, are you using the patience algorithm with git? (git config
diff.algorithm patience)  It makes indentation patches easier to review,
by not trying to interleave lone } and blank lines that correspond to
different code from pre- and post-patch.
