checkpatch: validate signature styles and To: and Cc: lines
Signatures have many forms and can sometimes cause problems if not in the correct format when using git send-email or quilt. Try to verify the signature tags and email addresses to use the generally accepted "Signed-off-by: Full Name <email@domain.tld>" form. Original idea by Anish Kumar <anish198519851985@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Anish Kumar <anish198519851985@gmail.com> Cc: Nick Bowler <nbowler@elliptictech.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
