Warning on tabs by default (#9230) for GHC 7.10

The boot libraries have not been detabbed, and that's something we
can't immediately fix. However, the warnings being on by default means
people should feel the burn to fix it quickly, I hope, and we can just
update all of our submodules accordingly.

I did notice however in the diff that I missed the fact `hsc2hs` has
also not been detabbed. That can be fixed immediately, however.
