Ah thanks. That works.

It would be <include/fs.h> which should already be there if there is a
file_operations structure.

I tried but failed. I get:

nit_defs_builtins: /usr/share/coccinelle/standard.h
between: p start 15 p end 15 m1 start 15 m1 end 15 m2 start 15 m2 end 15

-int -open:open_f-struct -inode -*-open:i-, -struct -file -*-open:f
Fatal error: exception Failure("The semantic patch is structured in a
way that may give bad results with isomorphisms. Please try to rewrite
it by moving + code out from -/context terms.")

When I add this:

@r1 depends on org || report @
identifier open_f != simple_open;
identifier i, f;
position p1;
int open_f@p1(struct inode *i, struct file *f)
if (i->i_private)
f->private_data = i->i_private;
f->private_data = i->i_private;
return 0;

@script:python depends on org@
p1 << r1.p1;

cocci.print_main("extra function",p1)

Any ideas what's wrong?
