For this assignment I went through the checkpatch documentation which I found on https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/dev-tools/checkpatch.html and then I looked at the implementation of checkpatch and tried to understand what is happening by the comments.

Same as what Lukas said. Please read the zeroth task and then attempt
