update to version 0.11

This version brings a more cautious by default.  The more
subjective checks are only applied with the --strict option.  It also
brings the usual slew of corrections for false positives.  Of note:

  - new tree detection, the source tree will be found via the executable
  - a major revamp of the unary detection to make it more parser like
  - a new summary at the bottom of the report
  - --strict option for subjective checks
  - --file to enable checking on complete files
  - support for use in emacs "compile" window

Andy Whitcroft (27):
      Version: 0.11
      fix up cat_vet for the case where there are no control characters
      any cast to a pointer introduces a type
      cpp unary operator detection needs to float

      sizeof may be a bareword and makes its argument unary
      unary checks for #ifdef et al need to find end of line
      add new --file mode to handle raw source files
      add --strict/--subjective which enables the subjective tests
      add some additional standard type suffixes
      cpp #elif is also a unary prefix
      case is not a function name
      widen asm volatile exceptions
      __kprobes is a type attribute
      typeof is a unary operator
      function open parenthesis checks should check all occurances
      expand sizeof() binary exceptions

      work harder to find the kernel root and add --root=
      fix --emacs mode line numbers and string concatenation warnings
      add a summary to the bottom of the main report
      loosen assignment in if checks
