Don't do this instance stuff. Instead pull in some identifier that
can come from elsewhere.

This is not indented properly.

On the second and subsequent lines of a multi-line function call,
the lines should start exactly at the first column after the openning
parenthesis of the first line.

You must use the correct number of TAB and SPACE characters necessary
to do so. Generally speaking, if you are indenting using only TAB
characters, odds are you are doing it wrong.

Please audit for, and fix this, in your entire patch series.
