Actually I am talking about those commits which referenced a revert commit.

For example:

If I want to mention a revert commit in my commit message, I will do something like.

This bug appeared first in commit 1234567890ab ("Revert "abc: foo bar"").
(Just an example)

Here, according to syntax, it is right but checkpatch.pl gives an error as multiple
quotes in commit messages are not handled in checkpatch.pl.
