Is there a way to tie checkpatch into git.  Perhaps into git commit?

Having something that would catch this before I embarrassed myself
certainly sounds nice.  However my overall impression of checkpatch
is that it catches newbie mistakes so unless it is trivial to run
checkpatch I don't expect I will run it because I don't expect to
tell me anything useful.
