update checkpatch.pl to version 0.16



This version brings proper quote tracking across lines, and brings the
handling of comments into the same mechanism ensuring nesting is correctly
handled.  It brings the usual flurry of fixes for false positives.  It also
brings a number of new checks.  The most contentious change will likely be
the checks for NR_CPUS as this throws some new warnings in kernel/sched.c.

Of note:
 - all new quote tracking across lines
 - all new comment tracking
 - new more direct, less ambigious wording for some warnings
 - recommends mutexes and completions over semaphores
 - recommends strict_strto* over simple_strto*
 - report on direct use of NR_CPUS

Andy Whitcroft (22):
      Version: 0.16
      string quote tracking should cross line boundaries
      check spacing round -> correctly across newlines
      checks for linux/ against asm/ include files should be warnings
      standardise on 'required' and 'prohibited'
      take the first end of condition when parsing statements
      values: cope with unbalanced brackets
      preprocessor #elif is not a function
      preprocessor #if should not trigger trailing statement checks
      test: allow us to limit output to a single error
      recommend real mutexes over semaphores
      asm checks should mirror those for __asm__
      warn on semaphores being used in place of completions
      trailing ; on control structure should ignore do {} while ();
      recommend strict_strtoX over simple_strtoX
      redo comment handling as a quote type
      use of NR_CPUS is normally wrong
      consistant spacing should only be about spaces
      if brace check suppression should only apply to the top-levels
      use tr/// to align spacing for operators
      move to using four parameter form of substr
      check and report modifications to include/asm
