The change would be from
*not* to entirely remove the tab. The ..._ASM_OP users all add
a tab AFAICT. Well except for dbxout.c, whose ..._ASM_OP:s
don't contain tabs!
Still doubtful? If so, tell me and I'll revert my patch locally
and run the c++ testsuite and cut and paste those messages and
send them. I didn't just change it on a whim. Right now, I
think the change was simply misunderstood as removing all
spacing, putting the dot in the first column. (Note to self:
don't use the word extraneous.)
