Subject: [PATCH] PCI: hv: fix alloc_cast.cocci warnings
Date: Tue, 3 Dec 2019 15:34:33 +0800
Message-ID: <20191203073433.x43csi4vy7r3r3ta@4978f4969bb8> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: kbuild test robot <>

drivers/pci/controller/pci-hyperv.c:2925:9-32: WARNING: casting value returned by memory allocation function to (struct hv_pcibus_device *) is useless.

 Remove casting the values returned by memory allocation functions
 like kmalloc, kzalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc etc.

Semantic patch information:
 This makes an effort to find cases of casting of values returned by
 kmalloc, kzalloc, kcalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc,
 kmem_cache_alloc_node, kmalloc_node and kzalloc_node and removes
 the casting as it is not required. The result in the patch case may
 need some reformatting.
