Subject: [PATCH] checkpatch: Add ability to find bad uses of vsprintf %p<foo> extensions

%pK was at least once misused at %pk in an out-of-tree module.
This lead to some security concerns.  Add the ability to track
single and multiple line statements for misuses of %p<foo>.

Andrew, this has gone back and forth a few times.

It's imperfect as a patch context with just a single
function addition can be missed, but that's not new
with $stat tests and just this patch.  Perhaps one day
the $stat identification mechanism can be improved.

Until then, can you please apply this?  Thanks.
