checkpatch currently complains about macros like the following:

(cap) < DMA_TX_TYPE_END; \
(cap) = next_dma_cap((cap), (mask)))

I'd like it if this patch updated Chapter 12 of Documentation/CodingStyle as well. That section is where the rule to check came from and it would be nice for it to mention the exception to the rule as well.
