[Ovmsdev] Crash debugging

I use Atom, which ships by default with the ‘whitespace’ package. That removes trailing whitespaces.

Did a quick check in our project, and we have it in 10 files in main/ - mostly whitespace on blank lines (which my editor is set to NOT remove - but I think it should).

In our own project, I think we should in general remove this. But, as Steven says, better to do it as a separate commit. Mea culpa.

Regards, Mark.
