    The scripts/checkpatch.pl now enforces certain format of the commit citing.

> ar->fw is expected to be pointing to memory allocated by vmalloc.  If the api1 method (via ath6kl_fetch_fw_api1) is used to allocate memory for ar->fw, then kmemdup is used.  This patch checks if the firmware being loaded is the 'fw' image, then use vmalloc, otherwise use kmalloc.

    This script also checks for unwrapped changelogs. Please run your patches 
thru it before posting.
