checkpatch: add test for comma use that should be semicolon
There are commas used as statement terminations that should typically have used semicolons instead. Only direct assignments or use of a single function or value on a single line are detected by this test. e.g.: foo = bar(), /* typical use is semicolon not comma */ bar = baz(); Add an imperfect test to detect these comma uses. No false positives were found in testing, but many types of false negatives are possible. e.g.: foo = bar() + 1, /* comma use, but not direct assignment */ bar = baz(); Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Link: Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
