checkpatch: fix the usage of capture group ( ... )
The usage of "capture group (...)" in the immediate condition after `&&` results in `$1` being uninitialized. This issues a warning "Use of uninitialized value $1 in regexp compilation at ./scripts/checkpatch.pl line 2638". I noticed this bug while running checkpatch on the set of commits from v5.7 to v5.8-rc1 of the kernel on the commits with a diff content in their commit message. This bug was introduced in the script by commit e518e9a59ec3 ("checkpatch: emit an error when there's a diff in a changelog"). It has been in the script since then. The author intended to store the match made by capture group in variable `$1`. This should have contained the name of the file as `[\w/]+` matched. However, this couldn't be accomplished due to usage of capture group and `$1` in the same regular expression. Fix this by placing the capture group in the condition before `&&`. Thus, `$1` can be initialized to the text that capture group matches thereby setting it to the desired and required value.
