It doesn't have this capability at the moment.  It's just a version of the 
Linux patchstylecheckemail.pl that I've modified to understand the different 
coding conventions in Xen.  GNU indent can quite possibly be configured to 
reformat the code as required - I'll look into finding a configuration setup 
that works for this (I'll probably start with the Linux lindent script and 
work from there - we're reasonably close to Linux conventions in many ways).

The style checker does various checks beyond indenting, though, so it'll still 
be worth running it.  I hope to get the it into mainline Xen at some point so 
that folks can just "make stylecheck" or similar before they submit patches.

Thanks for the feedback!
