Add a target to use the Coccinelle checker
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 activated. 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.
