It was just omap2plus_defconfig build using gcc-7.2.0

As you are sending patches as Markus Elfring I would expect you take
Coccinelle's suggestion into account and actually try to understand code
before sending patch. That suggestion may lead to actual bug in code
which your patch just leaves unnoticed as it is not apparent from
the patch itself (no, not talking about this very patch it all started

That said, I'm considering Markus Elfring being a human. If you do not like
reactions to your patches or are interested only in improving tool that
generates them, it would be better to just setup a "tip bot for Markus
Elfring" and let it send patches automatically. This way noone is going
to waste time on them as it would be clear those are purely machine only
generated and there's no point to reply.

The way you are sending patches makes impression (at least to me), that
you spent some time on fixing issue Coccinelle found and not just shut
the warning up.

And the idea is?
