checkpatch: add 6 missing types to --list-types
Unlike all other types, LONG_LINE, LONG_LINE_COMMENT and LONG_LINE_STRING are passed to WARN() through a variable. This causes the parser in list_types() to miss them and consequently they are not present in the output of --list-types. Additionally, types TYPO_SPELLING, FSF_MAILING_ADDRESS and AVOID_BUG are passed with a variable level, causing the parser to miss them too. So modify the regex to also catch these special cases.
