here is the problematic warning.
-kernel/cgroup.c:2269 cgroup_release_agent_write() warn: inconsistent returns mutex:&cgroup_mutex: locked (2235 [(-22)], 2237 [(-19)]) unlocked (2242 ) [smatch]
+kernel/cgroup.c:2269 cgroup_release_agent_write() warn: inconsistent returns mutex:&cgroup_mutex: locked (2262 [(-22)], 2264 [(-19)]) unlocked (2269 ) [smatch]
Basically, this is the same warning, it present before patching the
kernel and after patching it. So aiaiai should not tell about it, but it
does, which is a problem I need to fix somehow.
As you see, the line number is amended by aiaiai (2269). However, you
include other line numbers, which aiaiai does not amend.
At the moment aiaiai amends line numbers like this:
1. Pattern: ^path/to/file.c:XXX.* - XXX number is amended
2. Pattern: .*line XXX.* - XXX number is corrected
And I think it now only amends the first occurrence of "line XXX", but
this could be changes.
Would you consider to prefix all line numbers you output with "line",
sot that you'd end up with:
(line 2235 [(-22)], line 2237 [(-19)]) unlocked (line 2242 ) [smatch]
