* [PATCH] checkpatch: DT bindings should be a separate patch

Devicetree bindings should be their own patch as documented in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt section I.1.
This is because bindings are logically independent from a driver
implementation, they have a different maintainer (even though they often
are applied via the same tree), and it makes for a cleaner history in
the DT only tree created with git-filter-branch.

A pointer to Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt
might be helpful?

Should probably be /^MAINTAINERS/

This should have a ^ for the start of the filename and
generally, this is easier to read using m@...@ like:

				if ($realfile =~ m@^(?:Documentation/devicetree/|include/dt-bindings/)@) {

Perhaps there is simpler logic using an xor.

Perhaps add 'see: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt'
