I've always used spaces. Actually I'd like to switch to QEMU coding
style with 4 spaces, this is how Sparc files are formatted.

Yes, since all uses of trampoline call setup_trampoline() before use.
I also renamed 't' to trampoline2 to catch all uses of it.

Yes, the dependencies are far from complete. The problem is that
rules.mak is autogenerated, so the dependencies should be added to
build.xml files or some magic added to use gcc -MMD flags.

Including a .c file from another is not so great idea, this happens in
a few places.
