Perhaps something to add as a generic test in checkpatch.

Right now it checks separately for each __attribute__
use with any of aligned, section, printf and scanf.

Likely it should include more of the #defines from
include/linux/compiler_attributes.h.

include/linux/compiler_attributes.h:#define __alias(symbol)                 __attribute__((__alias__(#symbol)))
include/linux/compiler_attributes.h:#define __aligned(x)                    __attribute__((__aligned__(x)))
