Had run this utility against my battery patches, and caught
bunch of false positives (I believe).


+#define BATTERY_PROP(bat, prop) ({ \
+ void *value = bat->get_property(bat, BATTERY_PROP_##prop); \
+ value ? *(int*)value : 0; \
+})
Got: "Macros with multiple statements should be enclosed in a do - while
loop"

I believed ({}) is equivalent for "do - while", it's widely used in
kernel.

+ switch (bp) {
+ default: break;
+ };
Got "Gotos should not be indented", at "default: break;"


+static int bind_pst_to_psy(struct power_supplicant *pst,
+ struct power_supply *psy)
+{
Got "use tabs not spaces". Here spaces intentionally used for
formatting purpose, not for the indenting.
