checkpatch.pl: add check for Change-Id
A commit hook for the Gerrit code review server [1] inserts change identifiers so Gerrit can track patches through multiple revisions. These identifiers are noise in the context of the upstream kernel. (Many Gerrit servers are private. Even given a public instance, given only a Change-Id, one must guess which server a change was tracked on. Patches submitted to the Linux kernel mailing lists should be able to stand on their own. If it's truly useful to reference code review on a Gerrit server, a URL is a much clearer way to do so.) Thus, issue an error when a Change-Id line is encountered before the Signed-off-by. 1. https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit/+/master/gerrit-server/src/main/resources/com/google/gerrit/server/tools/root/hooks/commit-msg Signed-off-by: Christopher Covington <cov@codeaurora.org> Cc: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
