2010-08-31Coccinelle: Add null/kmerr.cocciNicolas Palix
This semantic patch looks for kmalloc etc that are not followed by a NULL check. It only gives a report in the case where there is some error handling code later in the function, which may be helpful in determining what the error handling code for the call to kmalloc etc should be.

2010-07-02scripts/dtc: Fix a resource leakMartin Ettl
during a check of the current git head of the linux kernel with the static code analysis tool cppcheck (http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/cppcheck/index.php?title=Main_Page) the tool discovered a resource leak in linux-2.6/scripts/dtc/fstree.c.

2010-06-28Add support for the C variable in the coccicheck scriptNicolas Palix
This patch makes it possible to use the Coccinelle checker with the C variable of the build system. To check only newly edited code, the following command may be used: 'make C={1,2} CHECK="scripts/coccicheck"' This runs every semantic patch in scripts/coccinelle by default. The COCCI variable may additionally be used to only apply a single semantic patch.

2010-06-12Add scripts/coccinelle/err_cast.cocciNicolas Palix
Add a Coccinelle file to use the ERR_CAST function Before the release 2.6.25, one had to use ERR_PTR(PTR_ERR(...)) to convert the pointer type of an error. Since then, the function ERR_CAST has been available for that purpose.

2010-06-12Add a target to use the Coccinelle checkerNicolas Palix
A 'coccicheck' target is added. It can be called with four different modes. Each one generates a different kind of output, i.e. context, patch, org, report, according to the corresponding mode to be activated. The new target calls the 'coccicheck' front-end in the 'scripts' directory with the MODE argument. Every SmPL file in the subdirectories of 'scripts/coccinelle' is then given to the front-end and applied to the entire source tree. The four modes behave as follows: 'report' generates a list in the following format: file:line:column-column: message 'patch' proposes a fix, when possible. 'context' highlights lines of interest and their context in a diff-like style. Lines of interest are indicated with '-'. 'org' generates a report in the Org mode format of Emacs.

2010-06-03checkkconfigsymbols.sh: Kconfig symbols sometimes have lowercase lettersRoland Dreier
Quite a few Kconfig symbols contain lowercase letters. The current checkkconfigsymbols.sh code only contains A-Z in the regexp it uses to find config symbols in source code, so it comes up with the wrong symbol to look for in Kconfig files and then generates false positives when it doesn't find that wrong symbol. For example checking drivers/net generates a false positive for MAC89 because the the actual config option is MAC89x0. Fix this by also adding a-z to the regexp.

2010-04-14gconfig: add support to show hidden options that have promptsLi Zefan
There's a button in gconfig to "Show all options", but I think normally we are not interested in those configs which have no prompt and thus can't be changed, so here I add a new button to show hidden options which have prompts.

2010-04-14menuconfig: add support to show hidden options which have promptsLi Zefan
Usage: Press <Z> to show all config symbols which have prompts. Quote Tim Bird: | I've been bitten by this numerous times. I most often | use ftrace on ARM, but when I go back to x86, I almost | always go through a sequence of searching for the | function graph tracer in the menus, then realizing it's | completely missing until I disable CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE. | | Is there any way to have the menu item appear, but be | unsettable unless the SIZE option is disabled? I'm | not a Kconfig guru... I myself found this useful too. For example, I need to test ftrace/tracing and want to be sure all the tracing features are enabled, so I enter the "Tracers" menu, and press <Z> to see if there is any config hidden. I also noticed gconfig and xconfig have a button "Show all options", but that's a bit too much, and I think normally what we are not interested in those configs which have no prompt thus can't be changed by users. Exmaple: --- Tracers -*- Kernel Function Tracer - - Kernel Function Graph Tracer [*] Interrupts-off Latency Tracer - - Preemption-off Latency Tracer [*] Sysprof Tracer Here you can see 2 tracers are not selectable, and then can find out how to make them selectable.

2010-03-23headerdep: perlcritic warningStephen Hemminger
Minor perlcritic warning: headerdep.pl: "return" statement with explicit "undef" at line 84, column 2. See page 199 of PBP. (Severity: 5) The rationale according to PBP is that an explicit return of undef (contrary to most people's expectations) doesn't always evaluate as false. It has to with the fact that perl return value depends on context the function is called. If function is used in list context, the appropriate return value for false is an empty list; whereas in scalar context the return value for false is undefined. By just using a "return" both cases are handled. In the context of a trivial script this doesn't matter. But one script may be cut-paste into later code (most people like me only know 50% of perl), that is why perlcritic always complains Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>
