checkpatch: remove warning for 'old' stable@kernel.org address
It may not be the actual real stable mailing list address, but the stable scripts to actually pick up on the traditional way to mark stable patches. There are also reasons to explicitly avoid using the actual mailing list address, since security patches with embargo dates generally do want the stable marking, but don't want tools etc to mistakenly send the patch out to the mailing list early. So don't warn for things that are still actively used and explicitly supported. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
