checkpatch: do not report nr_static as a static declaration
Andy Whitcroft [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:28 +0000 (14:41 -0800)]
Ensure we do not report identifiers containing the word static as static
declarations.  For example this should not be reported as an unecessary
assignement of 0:

long nr_static = 0;
