Good point. Checkpatch does that already, as I remember from time to
time I receive such warnings when a new driver is created, renamed or
removed. I didn't notice it on my patchset though.

Perhaps it excludes Documentation/ from the check logic.


PS.: In the specific case of media docs, I submitted a patch
yesterday addressing those renames.
