parentcheckpatch: warn when casting constants to c90 int or longer types (diff)
checkpatch: improve macros with flow control test
The current test excludes any macro with ## concatenation from being reported with hidden flow control. Some macros are used with return or goto statements along with ##args or ##__VA_ARGS__. A somewhat common case is a logging macro like pr_info(fmt, ...) then a return or goto statement. Check the concatenated variable for args or __VA_ARGS__ and allow those macros to also be reported when they contain a return or goto.
