Subject[PATCH 0/2] feat: checkpatch: prohibit Buglink: and warn about missing Link:
Thorsten Leemhuis suggested the following two changes to checkpatch, which
I hereby humbly submit for review. Please let me know if any changes
would be required for acceptance.

- checkpatch is rather long, so I might have chosen the wrong section to
add these two checks. Any better placement suggestion is welcome.
- checkpatch implements custum versions of Perl core modules, that might
be an future area for clean-ups? Eg. right off the bat there is a
`uniq` implementation. List::Util (core module since 5.8.0 (5.7.3 to
be pedantic)) has a far better performing version in XS.
