It is pdev-addvar.cocci, rule 'new'. deref.cocci wasn't used for the
watchdog patches. The script to apply the various rules is watchdog/make.sh.

Pointing to the actual scripts used is a good idea. I'll see if I can add
this for subsequent series. After all, the commit log is also auto-generated,
so this should be straightforward.

Not for this one. There were a couple of situations where I had to manually
split long lines to avoid checkpatch warnings, and I manually updated a few
of the commit logs, but not in this patch.

Coccinelle isn't perfect. The rule doesn't modify the entire argument list,
only the last argument, so coccinelle missed that it could have merged the
two lines into one.

A checkpatch rule suggesting that multiple extension lines can be merged
might be useful to help finding such situations. Just a thought.

Thanks,
