Subject[PATCH v8 20/31] scripts: checkpatch: diagnose uses of `%pA` in the C side as errors
Date
The `%pA` format specifier is only intended to be used from Rust.

`checkpatch.pl` already gives a warning for invalid specificers:

WARNING: Invalid vsprintf pointer extension '%pA'

This makes it an error and introduces an explanatory message:

ERROR: Invalid vsprintf pointer extension '%pA' - '%pA' is only intended to be used from Rust code
