Almost right. Missing a '\n' after "DEC Alpha code".
Without the '\n', running checkpatch with --terse outputs badly.

If you really wanted to optimize, you could make the first (smp_|)
become (?:smp_|) to avoid the unused capture group.
Or perhaps this could emit the actual type in the message like:

if (!$file && $line =~ /\b((?:smp_|)read_barrier_depends)\s*\(/ {
WARN("READ_BARRIER_DEPENDS",
"$1 should only be used in READ_ONCE or DEC Alpha code\n" . $herecurr);
