Sorry I just get back from a trip, did not have a chance to
write a reply during the travel.

I briefly look through the patch, haven't got enough time
to look at it in the detail level. Here is a few things that
jump out, I am not going to apply this patch as it is.

What is up with this nofree thing?
There should be much better way to keep the token
unfree.

Nack here as well.

Why BSD license? Sparse current is open software license and moving to
MIT license.

Please don't do change like this. It does not have any add on value.


There are a lot more I want to comment on but I need some time to think about
what is the best way to do it. I am not oppose to adding feature to track macro
dependency, but it need to be less intrusive to the code. I want to avoid impact
the normal code path that does not care about macro dependency. e.g. the
sparse checker.

I also suspect the hashing is unnecessary.  Give me some time to come up
with some suggestion.
