    But unfortunately I don't have examples handy.

    My POV must be a bit different: I treat errors like another class of
    warnings (perhaps more important that "mere" warnings but still not

    This is BTW precisely what is needed WRT to that chunk of code
    (include/trace/events/ext4.h, I assume checkpatch produces "error"
    there) - though I think I'd format it a bit differently.

    Perhaps checkpatch should stop producing "errors" (which are meaningless
    as checkpatch has no authority to veto anything - a human has to decide)
    and should simply give some severity code?
    OTOH I ignore error/warning distinction completely, perhaps the
    distinction is bogus? Not sure.
