Subject: [Cocci] Checking adjustments for pointer resets with SmPL
Date: Mon, 21 Sep 2020 17:34:52 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have noticed the update suggestion “USB: quirks: simplify quirk handling”.

Thus I converted a patch hunk into the following script variant for
the semantic patch language (according to the software “Coccinelle 1.0.8-00177-g28737419”).

identifier allocate, object, release;
-if (object)
-object = NULL;
 object = allocate(..., sizeof(...), ...);

Now I wonder at the moment why a known patch is not generated.
(An error message is not displayed.)
