Oh, I didn't know about test-lint.  Is there a place that documents the various checks you run, so I can avoid slowing you down?  Ones I know about:

Already documented:
  * `make DEVELOPER=1` (from CodingGuidelines)
  * running tests (from SubmittingPatches)

Stuff I've seen you mention in emails over time:
  * linux/scripts/checkpatch.pl
  * git grep -e '\<inline\>' --and --not -e 'static inline' -- \*.h
  * make -C t/ test-lint

Are there others?

Also, here's a fixup to the topic; as you pointed out, the exact contents
of the script being written were actually irrelevant; it was just an
input to a merge.
