SubjectRe: checkpatch: support deprecated terms checking

I see that this patch went into next and is already inciting people to
do wrong things [1]. Can you please fix it to require '--subjective'
switch or otherwise mark it clearly as suggestion-only?

The coding-style as in Linus' master says about *NEW* uses of the words
listed (those introductions I expect to be actually rare) and not about
existing use in the code or industry. Making a noise about all uses
found surely will generate a lot more irrelevant patches.


Best Regards
Michał Mirosław
