Thanks for the patch.
Your copyright assignment did go through.

I've rebased your patch and made a few minor changes (NEWS, --help,
indentation).
More will be required:
  - also describe the option in sections for sha1sum and the other
    sha*sum programs; probably use a macro to avoid duplication
  - when checking two or more files, don't stop processing (exit) upon
    an invalid line in the first.  i.e., process all files before exiting.
  - add tests
  - decide on the option name: I prefer --strict;  --pedantic comes
    with connotations that seem unjustified.
  - exercise all of this via the test suite

Subject: [PATCH] md5sum, sha1sum, etc: accept new option: --strict

Use this new option with --check when the input is expected to
consist solely of checksum lines.  With only --check, you would
get WARNINGs, but the program could still exit successfully.
With --strict, any invalid line makes the program exit non-zero.
* src/md5sum.c (FIXME):
* doc/coreutils.texi: Describe it.
* NEWS (New features): Mention it.

   Note the use of single quotes, not double quotes.
   That creates files named xaa.xz, xab.xz and xac.xz.

+  md5sum accepts the new --pedantic option.  With --check, it makes the
+  tool exit non-zero for any invalid input line, rather than just warning.
+  This also affects sha1sum, sha224sum, sha384sum and sha512sum.
+
 ** Improvements

   shuf outputs small subsets of large permutations much more efficiently.
