checkpatch: check for nested (un)?likely() calls
IS_ERR(), IS_ERR_OR_NULL(), IS_ERR_VALUE() and WARN*() already contain unlikely() optimization internally. Thus, there is no point in calling these functions and defines under likely()/unlikely(). This check is based on the coccinelle rule developed by Enrico Weigelt https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1559767582-11081-1-git-send-email-info@metux.net/ Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190829165025.15750-1-efremov@linux.com Signed-off-by: Denis Efremov <efremov@linux.com> Cc: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: Alexander Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Anton Altaparmakov <anton@tuxera.com> Cc: Boris Ostrovsky <boris.ostrovsky@oracle.com> Cc: Boris Pismenny <borisp@mellanox.com> Cc: Darrick J.
