SubjectRe: [v6 PATCH 05/21] x86/insn-eval: Add utility functions to get register offsets

Please end function names with parentheses.

And do you mean get_reg_offset(), per chance?

Err, you mean, it returns the offset to the register the argument
specifies.

Forgotten to edit the copy-paste?

Which means, nothing really needs insn_get_reg_offset_sib_index() and
you can get rid of it?

That's simply struct pt_regs - not a set of registers indicated by
ModRM?!?

Put that sentence under the "Return: " paragraph below so that it is
immediately obvious what the retvals are.

That name is too long: insn_get_modrm_rm_off() should be enough.

Let's stick to a single spelling: SIB, all caps.

insn_get_sib_base_off()

Ditto for the rest of the comments on insn_get_reg_offset_modrm_rm() above.

insn_get_sib_idx_off()

And again, if this function is unused, don't add it.

Thanks.
