  Log Message:
  checkpatch: Fix skipping of the most recent commit.

'range(n_patches, 0, -1)' generates list starting from 'n_patches'
and not including zero. This leads to checking of N most recent
commits starting from the second one.

New version will generate right list starting from 'n_patches - 1'
and including zero. So, the most recent commit (HEAD~0) will be
checked and desired behavior will be achieved.

Also, 'reversed' looks better than 'range(n_patches - 1, -1, -1)'

Fixes: a1fccabce2cb ("checkpatch: Support checking recent commits in the current repo.")
