Coccinelle: Script to detect incorrect argument to sizeof
This makes an effort to find cases where the argument to sizeof is wrong in memory allocation functions by checking the type of the allocated memory when it is a double pointer and ensuring the sizeof argument takes a pointer to the the memory being allocated. There are false positives in cases the sizeof argument is not used in constructing the return value.
