Subject: [Cocci] Coccinelle: zalloc-simple: Checking data processing for a bigger SmPL disjunction
Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2019 14:34:45 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have tried the following small script variant out for
the semantic patch language.

type T, T2;
expression x,E1,E2,E3,E4;
statement S;
- x = kmalloc(E1,E2);
+ x = kzalloc(E1,E2);
 x = (T)dma_alloc_coherent(E2,E1,E3,E4);
  if ((x==NULL) || ...) S
- memset((T2)x,0,E1);

It can generate an usable diff hunk.

elfring@Sonne:~/Projekte/Linux/next-patched> spatch scripts/coccinelle/api/alloc/zalloc-simple-x.cocci drivers/scsi/pmcraid.c

But I would like to add the last case distinction also to a similar
disjunction in the known (and discussed) SmPL script version.
I observe that the expected diff hunk is not provided then.
How would you like to fix this software situation?
