Subject: [Cocci] Determination of failure predicates for selected function calls with SmPL?
Date: Wed, 25 Mar 2020 18:00:36 +0100
Message-ID: <757cdb2d-9274-4d7d-64b8-387c76254254@web.de> (raw)

Hello,

I have noticed the patch “tty: serial: fsl_lpuart: fix return value checking”.
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-serial/20200325090658.25967-2-michael@walle.cc/
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1215542/
https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/3/25/202

I am curious if such a software transformation can be extended for similar
source code searches also by the means of the semantic patch language.
The proper knowledge of failure predicates for function calls is a key aspect
for this use case.
Would you like to clarify any corresponding development possibilities?

Regards,
Markus
