checkpatch: add test for long udelay
Holger reported: : The macro udelay cannot handle large values because of loss-of-precision. : : IMHO udelay on ARM is broken, because it also cannot work with fast : ARM processors (where bogomips >= 3355, which is in sight now). It's : just not broken enough that someone did something against it ... so : the current kludge is good enough. Until then, warn on long udelay uses. Also fix uses of $line that should have been $herecurr.
