coccicheck: replace --very-quiet with --quiet when debugging

When debugging (using --profile or --show-trying) you want to
avoid supressing output,  use --quiet instead. While at it, extend
documentation for SPFLAGS use.

For instance one can use:

$ export COCCI=scripts/coccinelle/misc/irqf_oneshot.cocci
$ make coccicheck DEBUG_FILE="poo.err" MODE=report SPFLAGS="--profile --show-trying" M=./drivers/mfd/arizona-irq.c

Expand Documentation/coccinelle.txt as well.

v4: expand Documentation/coccinelle.txt
v3: rebased, resolve conflicts, expand Documentation/coccinelle.txt
v2: use egrep instead of the *"=--option"* check, this doesn't work for
    disjunctions.

You can use SPFLAGS to add debugging flags, for instance you may want to
add both --profile --show-trying to SPFLAGS when debugging. For instance
you may want to use:
rm -f err.log
export COCCI=scripts/coccinelle/misc/irqf_oneshot.cocci
make coccicheck DEBUG_FILE="err.log" MODE=report SPFLAGS="--profile --show-trying" M=./drivers/mfd/arizona-irq.c
err.log will now have the profiling information, while stdout will
provide some progress information as Coccinelle moves forward with
work.
DEBUG_FILE support is only supported when using coccinelle >= 1.2.

# --profile will not output if --very-quiet is used, so avoid it.
