Subject[PATCH 6/9] regulator: palmas: 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>

There is no reduction in code size in this case, but the change does reduce
the size of the bss segment, containing uninitialized static data.

before:
text data bss dec hex filename
12882 3480 8 16370 3ff2 drivers/regulator/palmas-regulator.o

after:
text data bss dec hex filename
12882 3480 0 16362 3fea drivers/regulator/palmas-regulator.o
