checkpatch: macros which define structure members are not complex
We often see macros which define structure members, these are not complex and necessarily do not have braces or brackets. For example: #define _PLIST_HEAD_INIT(head) \ .prio_list = LIST_HEAD_INIT((head).prio_list), \ .node_list = LIST_HEAD_INIT((head).node_list) Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
