checkpatch chokes on Change-Id

Howdy,

I was studiously checking patch-submission guidelines and noticed the scripts/checkpatch.pl reminder. The documentation had already instructed me to install the commit-msg hook (to generate Change-Id tags in the commit logs), which I did. So when I then made a commit and format-patch'd it to a file, I was amused to see that checkpatch choked on it because it considers Change-Id to be an error. :-)

I'm not game to fix it, but though I'd mention it in case it's light work for someone else. I'll ignore checkpatch for now (it wasn't complaining about anything else).

Cheers,
Geoff
