This might be a reasonable thing to add to checkpatch.

And here's another possible similar perl word deduplicator attached:

Assuming you have git, this could be used like:

$ git ls-files -- <dir> | xargs perl

And it would overwrite all files with duplicated words.

No guarantees any changes it makes are right of course.
It still needs a human to verify any change.

For instance:

$ git ls-files kernel/trace/*.[ch] | xargs perl
$ git diff kernel/trace
