scripts/headers_check.pl: correct RE in header CONFIG leak check
Correct the regular expression in scripts/headers_check.pl to include '_' as a valid character in the class; otherwise, the check will report a "leaked" symbol of CONFIG_A_B_C as merely CONFIG_A. This patch will make no difference whatsoever in the current kernel tree as the call to the perl routine that does that check is currently commented out: &check_include(); &check_asm_types(); &check_sizetypes(); &check_prototypes(); # Dropped for now. Too much noise &check_config(); However, I noticed that problem when I was building the yum downloadable kernel source rpm for fedora 11 (beta), which *does* run that check, and that's where the problem became obvious.
