SubjectRe: [PATCH] scripts/checkpatch.pl: Change long line warning to 105 chars

Not sure if that's long enough (maybe it is).
132 looks like the next "natural" number.
The problematic case like printk(KERN_DEBUG "%s:%s:%s", var ? "yes" :
"no" and so on. If we split the code like that then better use 132 than
105 - even with 132 chars we may need to split, remember it's the printk
output which has to fit in 80 chars, or maybe usually has.

The main problem is checkpatch can't estimate "complexity". Fortunately
the reviewers can.

> Add 80 character long line STRICT test

Not sure what do you mean.

> Add 6+ leading indent tabs test, consider restructuring

This makes perfect sense, at least until shown otherwise (though being
a warning instead of an error means it's ok to trigger in perfectly
valid code).
