indentation patch

Description of problem:
I'm unaware of any formal documentation for the stateless support in Fedora and thus must resort to reading the shell script to understand the behavior and how I can use it.  Unfortunately this task is made difficult by the poor indenting within /usr/lib/systemd/fedora-readonly.

I'm attaching a patch here that only alters the leading whitespace in this script so that indentation is correct and consistent throughout.  I hope this can be applied so that future readers may also benefit.  This should apply cleanly initscripts-9.51.

Yes I agree that indentation in initscripts is really terrible. I thought fixing it in the past, but the problem is that it will make work with git history (git blame) more complicated.

So I am really sorry but I will not apply your patch.

And by the way I hope that we will drop this script in near future and use http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/stateless.html
