That check is already in checkpatch. Problem is that hardly anyone
runs the thing.

I think we're ready to wire checkpatch up to a email robot which monitors
the mailing lists and sends people nastygrams. I bet that'll be popular ;)

(I'd love it if it could detect wordwrapped and tab-expanded patches, too.
You wouldn't _believe_...)
