Yup, both could certainly be useful. A coccinelle script would likely be
able to catch a few false negatives that might pass through the
checkpatch script. It'll likely have similar difficulties with
KERN_CONTs though.

Also, I don't really know, but it might be tough enabling a script to
run on 0-day with the ~6000 potential errors already existing.
