checkpatch: fix 'return is not a function' square bracket handling
Andy Whitcroft [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:10:08 +0000 (15:10 -0800)]
We are incorrectly matching square brackets '[' and ']' leading to false
positives on more complex functions as below:

    return (dt3155_fbuffer[m]->ready_head -
dt3155_fbuffer[m]->ready_len +
dt3155_fbuffer[m]->nbuffers)%
(dt3155_fbuffer[m]->nbuffers);
