SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] checkpatch: Add a warning for log messages that don't end in a new line

The only actual false positive you've pointed out is the one that is
just incorrect in the wrong way (the author should have used a KERN_CONT
but did not). I could easily do something similar to what Julia proposes
and produce a different warning if the string ends in a space. But I
don't see any bullet proof way for any script to deduce what the author
actually meant.

Unless there's more actually constructive criticism I don't think I'll
be getting any further with this.
