I've never said any such thing.
I only said I am not enthused against a proposal to add a build
target that runs checkpatch or equivalent over *all* existing code,
which will invite needless churn (read again the part of the message
you quoted before I say "I am not enthused").
It is a totally separate issue for submitters to make sure they do
not introduce *new* problems, and use of "checkpatch --no-tree"
could be one way to do so.
