Subject[PATCH 2/9] mtd: physmap_of: 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 static
has no benefit, and dropping it reduces the code size.

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 in code size is indicates by the following output from the size
command.

before:
text data bss dec hex filename
835 80 8 923 39b drivers/mtd/maps/physmap_of_gemini.o

after:
text data bss dec hex filename
823 80 0 903 387 drivers/mtd/maps/physmap_of_gemini.o
