Subject: [PATCH RFC v3 0/3] checkpatch: add verbose mode

Add a new verbose mode to checkpatch. The verbose test 
descriptions are read from the checkpatch documentation
file at `Documentation/dev-tools/checkpatch.rst`.

The verbose mode is optional and can be enabled by the
flag -v or --verbose.

The documentation file is only parsed by
if the verbose mode is enabled. The verbose mode is also
suppressed when the --terse option is specified.

Changes in v3:
- Simplify documentation file parsing in checkpatch
- Document a total of 33 message types for checkpatch

Changes in v2:
- Use .rst Field Lists to specify the type descriptions.
- Add a few more type descriptions to documentation.

  checkpatch: add verbose mode
  docs: add documentation for checkpatch
  docs: add documentation for checkpatch
