[PATCH 0/3] support a few different build styles for projects

This patch series is a beginning step towards a bit more generic projects. The
primary modivation behind this, is to support building ethtool patches which is
a userspace tool that goes with the kernel for controlling network devices. I
don't expect to extend this beyond that, as ethtool works with just this
series. Maybe others might want to continue extending it that way..

The first two patches I will push to devel, but the third, I would like some
feedback on. The two patches first support detecting coccinelle and checkpatch,
and make checkpatch optionally controlled via the configuration file. These
changes help prevent issues on non-kernel builds that don't have these files,
but are also just good sanity checks to have.

The third patch is a change which tries to detect if we're a kernel build, and
otherwise try standard ./configure or ./autogen.sh builds. This adds support
for ethtool's autogen style build script, and possibly many other standard
autotools style projects.

Jacob Keller (3):
  aiaiai-test-patchset: check for coccinelle scripts first
  aiaiai-test-patchset: make checkpatch optional like other checkers
  aiaiai-make-project: Support non-kernel project builds
