checkpatch: correct check for kernel parameters doc
Adding a new kernel parameter with documentation makes checkpatch complain __setup appears un-documented -- check Documentation/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.rst The list of kernel parameters has moved to a separate txt file, but checkpatch has not been updated for this. Make checkpatch.pl look for the documentation for new kernel parameters in kernel-parameters.txt instead of kernel-parameters.rst.
