The get_quoted_string function does not expect invalid arguments. The $stat test can return non-statements for complicated macros like TRACE_EVENT. Allow the $stat block and test for vsprintf misuses to exceed the actual block length and possibly test invalid lines by validating the arguments of get_quoted_string.

2018-03-26checkpatch: kconfig: prefer 'help' over '---help---'Ulf Magnusson1-1/+5
IMO, we should discourage '---help---' for new help texts, even in cases where it would be consistent with other help texts in the file. This will help if we ever want to get rid of '---help---' in the future. Also simplify the code to only check for exactly '---help---'. Since commit c2264564df3d ("kconfig: warn of unhandled characters in Kconfig commands"), '---help---' is a proper keyword and can only appear in that form. Prior to that commit, '---help---' working was more of a syntactic quirk. Signed-off-by: Ulf Magnusson <ulfalizer@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>
2018-03-26checkpatch: kconfig: check help texts for menuconfig and choiceUlf Magnusson1-2/+11
Currently, only Kconfig symbols are checked for a missing or short help text, and are only checked if they are defined with the 'config' keyword. To make the check more general, extend it to also check help texts for choices and for symbols defined with the 'menuconfig' keyword. This increases the accuracy of the check for symbols that would already have been checked as well, since e.g. a 'menuconfig' symbol after a help text will be recognized as ending the preceding symbol/choice definition. To increase the accuracy of the check further, also recognize 'if', 'endif', 'menu', 'endmenu', 'endchoice', and 'source' as ending a symbol/choice definition.

2018-03-16arch: remove blackfin portArnd Bergmann1-26/+0
The Analog Devices Blackfin port was added in 2007 and was rather active for a while, but all work on it has come to a standstill over time, as Analog have changed their product line-up. Aaron Wu confirmed that the architecture port is no longer relevant, and multiple people suggested removing blackfin independently because of some of its oddities like a non-working SMP port, and the amount of duplication between the chip variants, which cause extra work when doing cross-architecture changes.

DEVICE_ATTR is a declaration macro that has a few alternate and preferred forms like DEVICE_ATTR_RW, DEVICE_ATTR_RO, and DEVICE_ATTR. As well, many uses of DEVICE_ATTR could use the preferred forms when the show or store functions are also named in a regular form. Suggest the preferred forms when appropriate.

Allow lines with URL to exceed the 80 char limit for improved interaction in adaption to ongoing but undocumented practice. $ git grep -E '://\S{77}.*' -- '*.[ch]' As per RFC3986 [1], the URL format allows for alphanum, +, - and . characters in the scheme before the separator :// as long as it starts with a letter (e.g. https, git, f.-+). Recognition of URIs without more context information is prone to false positives and thus currently left out of the heuristics. $rawline is used in the check as comments are removed from $line.

2017-11-29vsprintf: add printk specifier %pxTobin C. Harding1-1/+1
printk specifier %p now hashes all addresses before printing. Sometimes we need to see the actual unmodified address. This can be achieved using %lx but then we face the risk that if in future we want to change the way the Kernel handles printing of pointers we will have to grep through the already existent 50 000 %lx call sites. Let's add specifier %px as a clear, opt-in, way to print a pointer and maintain some level of isolation from all the other hex integer output within the Kernel.

2017-11-17checkpatch: printks always need a KERN_<LEVEL>Joe Perches1-22/+4
There was code in checkpatch that allowed continuation printks to be used without KERN_CONT. Remove the continuation check and always require a KERN_<LEVEL>.

2017-10-03checkpatch: fix ignoring cover-letter logicStafford Horne1-1/+1
Currently running checkpatch on a directory with a cover-letter.patch file reports the following error: ----------------------------------------- patches/smp-v2/v2-0000-cover-letter.patch ----------------------------------------- ERROR: Does not appear to be a unified-diff format patch The logic to suppress the unified-diff check for cover letters is there but is checking $file instead of $filename.

2017-09-08checkpatch: add 6 missing types to --list-typesJean Delvare1-1/+2
Unlike all other types, LONG_LINE, LONG_LINE_COMMENT and LONG_LINE_STRING are passed to WARN() through a variable. This causes the parser in list_types() to miss them and consequently they are not present in the output of --list-types. Additionally, types TYPO_SPELLING, FSF_MAILING_ADDRESS and AVOID_BUG are passed with a variable level, causing the parser to miss them too. So modify the regex to also catch these special cases.

2017-09-08checkpatch: rename variables to avoid confusionJean Delvare1-16/+16
The variable name "$msg_type" is sometimes used to set the message type, and sometimes used to set the message level. This works but is kind of confusing. Use "$msg_level" in the latter case instead, to make the code clearer.

2017-09-08checkpatch: add --strict check for ifs with unnecessary parenthesesJoe Perches1-0/+24
An if statement test like if ((foo == bar) && (baz != qux)) can arguably be better written without the parentheses as if (foo == bar && baz != qux) Add a test to find these cases.

2017-07-10checkpatch: improve multi-line alignment testJoe Perches1-1/+1
The current test fails to warn about improper alignment with code like foo->bar = func(arg1, arg2); because foo->bar is not a single identifier. Convert the $Ident to $Lval which allows for multiple dereferences.

2017-07-10checkpatch: change format of --color argument to --color[=WHEN]John Brooks1-6/+29
The boolean --color argument did not offer the ability to force colourized output even if stdout is not a terminal. Change the format of the argument to the familiar --color[=WHEN] construct as seen in common Linux utilities such as git, ls and dmesg, which allows the user to specify whether to colourize output "always", "never", or "auto" when the output is a terminal. The default is "auto". The old command-line uses of --color and --no-color are unchanged.

2017-07-10checkpatch: silence perl 5.26.0 unescaped left brace warningsCyril Bur1-3/+3
As of perl 5, version 26, subversion 0 (v5.26.0) some new warnings have occurred when running checkpatch. Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated here (and will be fatal in Perl 5.30), passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^(.\s*){ <-- HERE \s*/ at scripts/checkpatch.pl line 3544. Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated here (and will be fatal in Perl 5.30), passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^(.\s*){ <-- HERE \s*/ at scripts/checkpatch.pl line 3885. Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated here (and will be fatal in Perl 5.30), passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^(\+.*(?:do|\))){ <-- HERE / at scripts/checkpatch.pl line 4374. It seems perfectly reasonable to do as the warning suggests and simply escape the left brace in these three locations.
