I'm not against it from a style point of view, but from a it totally
breaks git history, blame, cherry-picking and many other useful things
I'd really ask you to reconsider and just use editorconfig. Maybe r600
is quiet enough now we don't have to worry about that much backports
or cherry-pick, so I'll leave it up to you.

At least leave sb alone since we probably want to kill that someday if
your NIR backend gets there, and I doubt you want to touch it too much
