The question is not whether it is insufficient, but whether it is
appropriate.  Detecting Coccinelle issues is one step.  The next step
is deciding what to do with them.  Up to now, these messages have been
sent out as informational, not as patches.

Before sending patches to change existing code, address the "problem"
so that it doesn't continue to happen.  Only afterwards is it
appropriate to discuss what to do with existing code.
