checkpatch: fix extraneous EXPORT_SYMBOL* warnings
These are caused by checkpatch incorrectly parsing its internal representation of a statement block for struct's (or anything else that is a statement block encapsulated in {}'s that also ends with a ';'). Fix this by properly parsing a statement block. An example: +struct dummy_type dummy = { + .foo = "baz", +}; +EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(dummy); + +static int dummy_func(void) +{ + return -EDUMMYCODE; +} +EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(dummy_func); WARNING: EXPORT_SYMBOL(foo); should immediately \ follow its function/variable #19: FILE: dummy.c:4: +EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(dummy); The above warning is issued when it should not be.
