Hi Utkarsh,

Thank you for the patch! Yet something to improve:

[auto build test ERROR on lwn/docs-next]
[also build test ERROR on linus/master v5.19 next-20220728]
[If your patch is applied to the wrong git tree, kindly drop us a note.
And when submitting patch, we suggest to use '--base' as documented in
https://git-scm.com/docs/git-format-patch#_base_tree_information]

url: https://github.com/intel-lab-lkp/linux/commits/Utkarsh-Verma/docs-checkpatch-add-some-new-checkpatch-documentation-messages/20220802-135802
base: git://git.lwn.net/linux.git docs-next

If you fix the issue, kindly add following tag where applicable

1303 **CONFIG_DESCRIPTION**
1304 Kconfig symbols should have a help text which fully describes
1305 it.
1306
1307 **CORRUPTED_PATCH**
1308 The patch seems to be corrupted or lines are wrapped.
1309 Please regenerate the patch file before sending it to the maintainer.
1310
1311 **CVS_KEYWORD**
1312 Since linux moved to git, the CVS markers are no longer used.
1313 So, CVS style keywords ($Id$, $Revision$, $Log$) should not be
1314 added.
1315
1316 **DEFAULT_NO_BREAK**
1317 switch default case is sometimes written as "default:;". This can
1318 cause new cases added below default to be defective.
1319
1320 A "break;" should be added after empty default statement to avoid
1321 unwanted fallthrough.
1322
1323 **DOS_LINE_ENDINGS**
1324 For DOS-formatted patches, there are extra ^M symbols at the end of
1325 the line. These should be removed.
1326
1327 **DT_SCHEMA_BINDING_PATCH**
1328 DT bindings moved to a json-schema based format instead of
1329 freeform text.
1330
1331 See: https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/devicetree/bindings/writing-schema.html
1332
1333 **DT_SPLIT_BINDING_PATCH**
1334 Devicetree bindings should be their own patch. This is because
1335 bindings are logically independent from a driver implementation,
1336 they have a different maintainer (even though they often
1337 are applied via the same tree), and it makes for a cleaner history in the
1338 DT only tree created with git-filter-branch.
1339
1340 See: https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.html#i-for-patch-submitters
1341
1342 **EMBEDDED_FILENAME**
1343 Embedding the complete filename path inside the file isn't particularly
1344 useful as often the path is moved around and becomes incorrect.
1345
1346 **FILE_PATH_CHANGES**
1347 Whenever files are added, moved, or deleted, the MAINTAINERS file
1348 patterns can be out of sync or outdated.
1349
1350 So MAINTAINERS might need updating in these cases.
1351
1352 **MEMSET**
1353 The memset use appears to be incorrect. This may be caused due to
1354 badly ordered parameters. Please recheck the usage.
1355
1356 **MISORDERED_TYPE**
1357 According to section “6.7.2 Type Specifiers” in C90 standard, “type
1358 specifiers may occur in any order.” This means that "signed long long
1359 int" is same as "long long int signed". But to avoid confusion and make
1360 the code easier to read, the declaration type should use the following
1361 format::
1362
1363 [[un]signed] [short|int|long|long long]
1364
1365 Below is the list of standard integer types. Each row lists all the
1366 different ways of specifying a particular type delimited by commas.
1367 Note: Also include all the permutations of a particular type
1368 on the left column delimited by comma. For example, the permutations
1369 for "signed long int" are "signed int long", "long signed int",
1370 "long int signed", "int signed long", and "int long signed".
1371
1372 +--------------------------------------------------+--------------------+
1373 | Types | Recommended Way |
1374 +=======================================================================+
1375 | char | char |
1376 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1377 | signed char | signed char |
1378 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1379 | unsigned char | unsigned char |
1380 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1381 | signed, int, signed int | int |
1382 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1383 | unsigned, unsigned int | unsigned int |
1384 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1385 | short, signed short, short int, signed short int | short |
1386 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1387 | unsigned short, unsigned short int | unsigned short |
1388 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1389 | long, signed long, long int, signed long int | long |
1390 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
1391 | unsigned long, unsigned long int | unsigned long |
1392 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
> 1393 | long long, signed long long, long long int, | long long |
