[PATCH 2/2] RTC: spear: Fix several error checks

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


There are several comparisons of a unsigned int to less than zero int spear RTC
driver. Such a check will always be true. In all these cases a signed int is
assigned to the unsigned variable, which is checked, before. So the right fix is
to make the checked variable signed as well. In one case the check can be
dropped completely, because all it does it returns 'err' if 'err' is less than
zero, otherwise it returns 0. Since in this particular case 'err' is always
either 0 or less this is the same as just returning 'err'.

The issue has been found using the following coccinelle semantic patch:

//<smpl>
@@
type T;
unsigned T i;
@@
(
*i < 0
|
*i >= 0
)
//</smpl>
