Add "Checking patches for errors"
---
Patch body here
 
== Checking patches for errors ==
Basic style error checking is provided by scripts/checkpatch.pl script
from linux kernel source tree. You might have headers or complete sources
of linux kernel at /usr/src/. Run
checkpatch.pl my_patch.patch (consider --no-tree option for headers-only)
It will produce detailed report on style problems in your patch.
Make sure to fix all _errors_(some warnings may be ignored).
 
To check whether your patches don't harm anything run
make test
It will launch [[ZDTM_Test_Suite]]. Check for error messages produced by it.
You may also want to run other tests(rpc, libcriu, security etc) from test/ dir.
