We would prefer this implemented without advice -- perhaps just by
rebinding v in Dired to a new, simple function `view-or-doc-view-file', or
by modifying `view-mode' itself to recognize such files and change to
doc-view-mode.  ("Such files" should of course be a user option; you may
have it so already.)

That makes your patch quite hard to read, and causes CVS conflicts with
everyone who has unchecked-in changes to the file.  There's nothing wrong,
I don't think, with fixing the indentation on lines that you change, but
otherwise it's best to leave it alone.  (This is why I'm not sure whether
your patch makes the set of doc-viewable file types a user option.)
