What I wrote is neither hyperbolic nor tonal.

I'm rather familiar with checkpatch.

High false positive messages are avoided by checkpatch and
new tests with high false positive rates are not accepted.

This proposal has a very high false positive rate.

So, as written.  nack.

Keep at it though.
Maybe something useful will be produced with more effort.
