Subject[PATCH 5/9] mfd: Drop unnecessary static
Date
Drop static on a local variable, when the variable is initialized before
any use, on every possible execution path through the function.

The semantic patch that fixes this problem is as follows:
(http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@bad exists@
position p;
identifier x;
type T;
@@

static T x@p;
...
x = <+...x...+>

@@
identifier x;
expression e;
type T;
position p != bad.p;
@@

-static
T x@p;
... when != x
when strict
?x = e;
// </smpl>

The change increases the code size but decreases the size of the bss segment.

before:
text data bss dec hex filename
3369 272 300 3941 f65 drivers/mfd/twl4030-irq.o

after:
text data bss dec hex filename
3401 272 28 3701 e75 drivers/mfd/twl4030-irq.o
