That isn't really possible with checkpatch as
I'm sure you know that it looks at patch
contexts and it isn't really meant to scan
entire files.

You might be better off with a separate script
like the checkincludes.pl one.

You might possibly integrate that script into
checkpatch by looking at the "new file mode"
block, remember those and see if in the patch
each appropriate file has one of the spdx tags.
