Thanks, I was running Smatch couple times in the past. Finding how to
run Smatch isn't the problem, the thing is that Smatch either isn't
packaged by distros or packaged version is outdated, hence there is a
need to maintain it by yourself.
Also, is it guaranteed that Smatch will always work properly with
I imagine more developers could start to engage in using Smatch if
kernel supported 'make smatch' command which would automate the process
of fetching, building and running Smatch.
Couldn't the "kernel" version of Smatch reside in the kernel's tools/?
Or maybe just the parts of Smatch that are necessary for kernel
checking, like kernel's DB/scripts and etc. Doesn't it make sense?
