checkpatch: improve Gerrit Change-Id: test
The Gerrit Change-Id: entry is sometimes placed after a Signed-off-by: line. When this occurs, the Gerrit warning is not currently emitted as the first Signed-off-by: signature sets a flag to stop looking. Change the test to add a test for the --- patch separator and emit the warning before any before the --- and also before any diff file name.
