  Log Message:
  checkpatch: fix patch separator line regex

The separator line always starts with three dashes on a line, optionally
followed by either white-space, OR a single space and a filename.  The
regex would previously match on any three dashes in a row.  This means
that a patch (such as [1]) would trigger the parser state machine to
advance beyond the signed-off checks.

Now, bound the check only to use what git-mailinfo would use as a
   --- <filename>
