checkpatch: ensure kconfig help checks only apply when we are adding help
When checking the length of the help we need to be sure we are seeing the whole story before erroring. Firstly we only want to check when adding the help in the first place. Second we need to be sure that we are seeing the end of the entry, nominally when there is no context below or that context shows the start of the next entry.
