Subject: [PATCH RFC] checkpatch: fix for catching all world writable settings

Currently checkpatch will fuss if one uses world writable settings in debugfs
files by passing S_IWUGO but not when passing S_IRWXUGO. This patch extends
the check to cover the S_IRWXUGO case.

tested on trivial examples:
WARNING: Exporting world writable files is usually an error. Consider more 
restrictive permissions.
#72: FILE: test.c:72:
+       id_file = debugfs_create_file("id", S_IRUGO | S_IWUGO, my_dir,

with the patch applied it also fusses now in the S_IRWXUGO case.
WARNING: Exporting world writable files is usually an error. Consider more 
restrictive permissions.
#72: FILE: test.c:72:
+       id_file = debugfs_create_file("id", S_IRWXUGO, my_dir,

patch is against linux-next 3.19.0-rc1 -next-20141226
