The codespell dictionary was moved from
`/usr/share/codespell/dictionary.txt` to data/dictionary.txt
under the codespell_lib installation directory.

Checkpatch still uses a default absolute path for it which will
no longer work on new codespell installations unless the path
is specified through --codespellfile.

Detect the codespell dictionary path dynamically during
runtime if the default path or the user provided dictionary
path does not exist.

It doesn't seem to me that using python3 is a great way to invoke python.
Maybe test the external command return $? when codespell isn't installed.

Unlikely, but this could still end up with a existing file of /data/dictionary.txt
that is not a codespell file.

Sure, I will add that.

So does testing for the return status give us some guarantee here? The
dictionary
path should be relative to the codespell_lib directory, that's what
the codespell
people writes.
