    A 'coccicheck' target is added. It can be called with four different
    modes. Each one generates a different kind of output, i.e. context,
    patch, org, report, according to the corresponding mode to be
    The new target calls the 'coccicheck' front-end in the 'scripts'
    directory with the MODE argument. Every SmPL file in the
    subdirectories of 'scripts/coccinelle' is then given to the front-end
    and applied to the entire source tree.
    The four modes behave as follows:
    'report' generates a list in the following format:
      file:line:column-column: message
    'patch' proposes a fix, when possible.
    'context' highlights lines of interest and their context in a
    diff-like style. Lines of interest are indicated with '-'.
    'org' generates a report in the Org mode format of Emacs.
