It can happen that function implementations with the return type “void”
call a special function at the end of if branches.
Such calls are occasionally followed by an immediate return.
The same function can be called at the end of the function implementation.
Thus it can be helpful to replace previous function calls
by goto statements.

Provide design options for the adjustment of affected source code
by the means of the semantic patch language (Coccinelle software).
