I see your point. I wanted to extend C= to handle checkpatch as well but see no
obvious good non-intrusive solution.

That works well with coccinelle since both sparse and coccinelle rely on getting
the same command line options as what's passed to the compiler, while checkpatch
is quite different:

make C=2 CHECK="\$(srctree)/scripts/checkpatch.pl"

fails, complaining about every single compiler flag.
