    Subjectupdate checkpatch to version 0.20
    Following this email is the next batch of updates to checkpatch.
    This marks a change in how I intend to send updates. The previous
    "single delta" update caused us to lose a patch from Greg KH (which is
    re-included in this update), bad. By sending the actual patches we avoid
    regressing anything I have missed, it also has the advantage of maintaining
    individual changes to carry signoff more accurately and generally being
    more transparent.

    This version brings a few new checks and the usual slew of fixes for
    false positives mostly in type detection. Of note:

    - allow printk text strings to bust the width restrictions for
    - major fixes for possible type/modifier handling,
    - trailing statement checks for case and default,
    - trailing statement checks for for and while,
    - spacing checks for square brackets '[' ']',
    - conditions/loops indent checks, and
    - checks for new use of __initcall.

    Complete changelog below.
