Hi,
So i managed to add parallelization in my script and the generation was a
lot faster
( brought down from >3 hours to <40 mins ).
The script is at:
https://github.com/raydwaipayan/lkm-task-1/blob/master/run_checkpatch.pl

As you told, I applied the patch and compared the statistics. In my case
however the statistics
vary. Before patching total no. of errors of type GIT_COMMIT_ID was 270,
and after patching,
the number went down to 251. This is in constrast to the author's finding
but the number
reduces, so the patch works apparently.

I am posting the diff of statistics before and after the patch:

99c99
< COMMIT_LOG_LONG_LINE: 1059
---
> COMMIT_LOG_LONG_LINE: 1057
126c126
< GIT_COMMIT_ID: 270
---
> GIT_COMMIT_ID: 251
142,143c142,143
< Warnings generated: 25661
< Errors generated: 4768
---
> Warnings generated: 25659
> Errors generated: 4749

As you can see, the warnings of type COMMIT_LOG_LONG_LINE decreased too.

The entire output and scripts can be found at:
https://github.com/raydwaipayan/lkm-task-1


Thanks,
Dwaipayan.
