SubjectRe: bug in checkpatch (on pointers to typedefs?)
I saw this too with checkpatch.pl version 0.12
It seems like checkpatch.pl knows only about types derived
from @typeList by build_types.

Example below...

$ cat <<EOF | scripts/checkpatch.pl -

+bar(int a, my_uint32_t *);
EOF
ERROR: need consistent spacing around '*' (ctx:WxB)
#7: FILE: f.c:1:
+foo(int a, my_uint32 *);
^
total: 1 errors, 0 warnings, 2 lines checked
