checkpatch.pl: warn on duplicate sysctl local variable
Commit d91bff3011cf ("proc/sysctl: add shared variables for range check") adds some shared const variables to be used instead of a local copy in each source file. Warn when a chunk duplicates one of these values in a ctl_table struct: $ scripts/checkpatch.pl 0001-test-commit.patch WARNING: duplicated sysctl range checking value 'zero', consider using the shared one in include/linux/sysctl.h #27: FILE: arch/arm/kernel/isa.c:48: + .extra1 = &zero, WARNING: duplicated sysctl range checking value 'int_max', consider using the shared one in include/linux/sysctl.h #28: FILE: arch/arm/kernel/isa.c:49: + .extra2 = &int_max, total: 0 errors, 2 warnings, 14 lines checked Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190531131422.14970-1-mcroce@redhat.com Signed-off-by: Matteo Croce <mcroce@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Cc: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Aaron Tomlin <atomlin@redhat.com> Cc: Matthew Wilcox <willy@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
