    Subject[PATCH] fix alloc_cast.cocci warnings
    fs/cifs/smb2misc.c:689:14-41: WARNING: casting value returned by memory allocation function to (struct close_cancelled_open *) is useless.

    Remove casting the values returned by memory allocation functions
    like kmalloc, kzalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc etc.

    Semantic patch information:
    This makes an effort to find cases of casting of values returned by
    kmalloc, kzalloc, kcalloc, kmem_cache_alloc, kmem_cache_zalloc,
    kmem_cache_alloc_node, kmalloc_node and kzalloc_node and removes
    the casting as it is not required. The result in the patch case may
    need some reformatting.
