[PATCH] apparmor: fix odd_ptr_err.cocci warnings (fwd)

From: Julia Lawall
Date: Thu Oct 24 2019 - 07:28:38 EST


The change suggested by Coccinelle is not correct, but the original code
is not correct either because the argument to PTR_ERR should be a pointer,
not an integer.

security/apparmor/audit.c:199:5-11: inconsistent IS_ERR and PTR_ERR on line 202.

PTR_ERR should access the value just tested by IS_ERR

Semantic patch information:
There can be false positives in the patch case, where it is the call to
IS_ERR that is wrong.
