checkpatch: add <foo>_<level> and MODULE_<BAR> to 80 column exceptions
Joe Perches [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:13:40 +0000 (17:13 -0700)]
Many module or file local logging functions use specific prefixes other
than pr|dev|netdev.  Allow all forms like foo_printk and foo_err to be
longer than 80 columns.

Also allow MODULE_<BAR> declarations to be longer than 80 columns.
