util/gitconfig: update pre-commit script

The previous pre-commit script generates an error when a commit doesn't
actually generate a patch file.  This happens in rare instances when the
only change in a patch is to update file permissions.

Update the pre-commit script to verify that there's actually a patch
before calling checkpatch.  Also print that we're running checkpatch
so that it doesn't look like odd failures come from lint-stable.

Fixes Bug #132 - Problem with `lint-stable` when changing mode of file
