It has been discussed before, at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/11/12/19 .

What is really frustrating is that some of the people which _do_ 
enforce one style of the two (tabs-only or tabs-spaces) have only
indirectly voiced their preferred style, as in
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/1/19/67 .

Often it was just (1)"checkpatch flagged your spaces, hence they are 
wrong" instead of (2)"in my tree, I only take tabs-only patches".


Now back to coding, oh and don't forget send a patch for CodingStyle 
since a mail without one is often taken even less seriously.
