Hm... It turns out we need to do a `make mrproper` between runs.
make mrproper ; make allmodconfig ; ~/progs/smatch/release/smatch_scripts/build_generic_data.sh --target scripts/
make mrproper ; make allmodconfig ; ~/progs/smatch/release/smatch_scripts/test_generic.sh --target scripts/
When I remove the grep out the autogenerated code this is what is left
grep -v .lex.c smatch_warns.txt | grep -v .tab.c
