[ovs-dev] [PATCH v2 0/7] checkpatch: Misc. cleanups, and a new feature
aconole at bytheb.org
Fri Oct 21 18:49:02 UTC 2016
This series cleans up and clarifies certain issues in the checkpatch
infrastructure. Additionally, a fix for the some of the matches is included.
The two features added by this series are:
1. The ability to parse a non-patch file (useful for applying cleanups to
2. Printing the line number where a change occurs in the file, instead of
in the patchfile.
With these two features, a simple script
for check_file in lib/*.c; do ./utilities/checkpatch.py -f $check_file; done
will print a number of violations (hopefully, correctly!).

checkpatch: Print the line in question distinctly
checkpatch: convert some of the warnings
checkpatch: Print file line numbers
