checkpatch: find hex constants as a single IDENT
Joe Perches [Tue, 18 Dec 2012 00:02:02 +0000 (16:02 -0800)]
Hexadecimal values are current found in 2 parts.  A hex constant like
0x123456abcdef is found as 0 and then x123456abcdef and later coalesced.

Instead, reverse the order of the 2 searches in $Constant to find 0x
first, then 0 so that the entire hex constant is found all at once.
