Subject[PATCH V2] checkpatch: Improve "return is not a function" test
From
Date
Find a few more cases where parentheses are used around
the value of a return statement.

This now uses the "$balanced_parens" test and also makes
the test depend on perl v5.10 and higher.

This now finds return with parenthesis uses the old code
did not find like:

ERROR: return is not a function, parentheses are not required
#211: FILE: arch/m68k/include/asm/sun3xflop.h:211:
+ return ((error == 0) ? 0 : -1);

V2: Add example to commit message.
No change in patch itself.
