[PATCH v1 0/1] SpellCheck plugin inspects fewer files when run on Linux

Kun Qin

REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3454

When spellcheck plugin invokes cspell to check files, it uses wildcard
path patterns, i.e. <package>/**/*.h.

On Linux system, this will be expanded by the shell therefore fewer files
will be picked up than speficied through original command line.

To resolve this issue, the path needs double quoting. So that the shell
does not expand and the input parameter is passed to cspell to expand.
