[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH RFC 0/3] checkpatch: add verbose mode

This patch series adds a verbose mode to checkpatch.
The verbose test descriptions are loaded from the
checkpatch documentation and parsed by checkpatch.

The documentation itself needs more work. More input
on the usage and test descriptions are needed.

Also the visual aspects of the verbose mode needs
some work put into. The usual printing of verbose
descriptions can cause confusion and maybe hard to
distinguish from the actual warnings.

Please note that this is only an initial attempt
and any comments are welcome.
