Attached is a patch that

Most of that is in files not covered by pgindent, some in new code since
the last pgindent.
This makes the entire tree git diff --check clean.  After this, future
patches can be inspected for whitespace errors with git diff --check,
something that has been discussed on occasion.
I always (well, almost always) do git diff --check, so making it stronger
sounds good to me.  But it sounds like this still leaves it to the
committer to remember to run it.  Can we do anything about that?

Personally I don't get the mania about trailing whitespace, but maybe that's just me.

We could certainly implement a hook on the server that would reject cases that fail this test, but we might find it hamstrings us a bit in future. I'm not sure what else could be done to remedy committer forgetfulness, though.
