git-apply: fix whitespace stripping

The algorithm isn't right here: it accumulates any set of 8 spaces into
tabs even if they're separated by tabs, so

<four spaces><tab><four spaces><tab>

is converted to

<tab><tab><tab>

when it should be just

<tab><tab>

So teach git-apply that a tab hides any group of less than 8 previous
spaces in a row.
