Subject: [PATCH v2] checkpatch: support more uppercase $logFunctions

Add support for uppercase logging function names (so that they may
exceed 80 cols) and regroup the matched expressions more logically.

Previously, WARN, WARN_RATELIMIT, WARN_ONCE were already supported but
many other uppercase logging functions were not and this caused
unfixable checkpatch warnings (an example: drivers/bluetooth/btusb.c)

Care was taken to avoid being overly broad by adding uppercase logging
functions that do not exist (such as VDBG) or by making everything case

Care was also taken to make sure that previously supported expressions
are still matched (such as WARN_RATELIMIT and WARN_ONCE).
