You're welcome.

I wrote a patch which introduces a lot of long lines, and I am fine
with that in this specific case, so I wanted to ask checkpatch to print
everything BUT line-over-80-columns warnings. I used --list-types to
find out the internal name for it... and couldn't see anything matching
in the list. But I knew it had to exist, so looked into the code.
