checkpatch: check for incorrect permissions
Rabin Vincent [Tue, 26 Oct 2010 21:23:16 +0000 (14:23 -0700)]
Throw an error when a source file has been given execute permissions using
the mode change line present in git diffs.  Also alow the filename
matching to use the "diff" line in addition to the "+++" line, since the
mode change lines appear before any "+++" lines.

[apw@canonical.com: simplified filename logic slightly, added tests]
