Subject: [PULL 06/10] scripts/checkpatch: Improve the check for authors mangled by the mailing list
Date: Fri, 19 Feb 2021 08:57:34 +0100

There were recently some patches on the list which had their "From:"
line mangled like this:

 From: qemu_oss--- via <qemu-devel@nongnu.org>

Since our test in the checkpatch.pl script did not trigger here, the
patches finally also ended up in a pull request, with the wrong author
set. So let's improve the regular expression to also complain on
these new patterns, too.
