Subject: [PATCH] checkpatch: add a rule to check devinitconst mistakes

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Check for const __devinitdata and non const __devinitconst

People get this regularly wrong and it breaks the LTO builds,
as it causes a section attribute conflict.

This doesn't catch all mistakes -- spreading over multiple lines,
getting const pointers wrong, but hopefully the common ones.
