Subject[PATCH 03/13] checkpatch: Add warning for p0-patches
Date
From: Wolfram Sang <w.sang@pengutronix.de>

Some people work internally with -p0-patches which has the danger that
one forgets to convert them to -p1 before mainlining. Bitten myself and
seen p0-patches in mailing lists occasionally, this patch adds a warning
to checkpatch.pl in case a patch is -p0. If you really want, you can
fool this check to generate false positives, this is why it just spits a
warning. Making the check 100% proof is trickier than it looks, so let's
start with a version which catches the cases of real use.
