Subject[PATCH] checkpatch: fix perl warning about unescaped brace
Date
Perl warns:

Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex

This is explained under "Quantifiers" in perl doc:
http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html#Quantifiers

(If a curly bracket occurs in a context other than one of the
quantifiers listed above, where it does not form part of a backslashed
sequence like \x{...} , it is treated as a regular character. However, a
deprecation warning is raised for these occurrences, and in Perl v5.26,
literal uses of a curly bracket will be required to be escaped, say by
preceding them with a backslash ("\{" ) or enclosing them within square
brackets ("[{]" ). This change will allow for future syntax extensions
(like making the lower bound of a quantifier optional), and better error
checking of quantifiers.)
