    That is a very interesting and useful tool :) I'd never heard of it
    before. The man page scares me a little bit - lots of options are marked
    as "alpha testing," but the ones i tried seemed to work fine. Anyway,
    without any modifications to Coccinelle, it is possible to do this:

    ls scripts/coccinelle/*/*.cocci | parallel -j+0 make coccicheck COCCI={}

    it seems to behave mostly like my patch, but doesn't cleanup quite as
    well if you decide to kill it with ctrl-c (it leaves instances of spatch
    running). On the upside, it is up to 3 seconds faster than my patch
    (because my patch waits 3 seconds before checking on the number of jobs
    that are running).
