Randy and I got together and hashed out a first cut at this.
(Randy actually gutted quite a lot of what I originally wrote, so deserves
much kudos for improving this beyond my initial crappy version).
You can find the script at
There's also a git clonable tree there (only http right now). shows
what fell out of running it on my mbox of lkml from the past month.
Some of them are kinda noisy, and perhaps should be moved under --pedantic

I'm all ears for additional regexps, bug reports or other suggestions.

Before wiring this up to a procmail rule to scan every patch, I think it's
probably a better idea to flesh it out a bit more.
