    + Overview / Quick Start
    +There are two ways to use Coccinelle with the Linux kernel.
    +1) Coccinelle can be used like sparse (see Documentation/sparse.txt):
    + make C=1 CHECK="scripts/coccicheck"
    + make C=2 CHECK="scripts/coccicheck"
    +2) Coccinelle can be used via a build target in the kernel's Makefile:
    + make coccicheck
    +There are a number of optional parameters that can be used with the build target.
    + make coccicheck MODE={patch,report,context,org} COCCI=? M=?
    + Determines what mode cocci operates in. If no mode is specified
    + then cocci will default to 'chain' mode which will run for each
    + available mode (patch, report, context, org).
    + Process a specific .cocci SmPL script. If this is not set then
    + process all scripts under scripts/coccinelle/
    + Limit cocci to a subset of directories. This is very similar to the
    + way the build system works when building modules.
