Subject[RFC] MAINTAINERS tag for cleanup robot
A difficult part of automating commits is composing the subsystem
preamble in the commit log. For the ongoing effort of a fixer producing
one or two fixes a release the use of 'treewide:' does not seem appropriate.

It would be better if the normal prefix was used. Unfortunately normal is
not consistent across the tree.

So I am looking for comments for adding a new tag to the MAINTAINERS file

D: Commit subsystem prefix


D: fpga: dfl:

Continuing with cleaning up clang's -Wextra-semi-stmt

A significant number of warnings are caused by function like macros with
a trailing semicolon. For example.

#define FOO(a) a++; <-- extra, unneeded semicolon
void bar() {
int v = 0;

Clang will warn at the FOO(a); expansion location. Instead of removing
the semicolon there, the fixer removes semicolon from the macro
definition. After the fixer, the code will be:

#define FOO(a) a++
void bar() {
int v = 0;

The fixer review is

A run over allyesconfig for x86_64 finds 62 issues, 5 are false positives.
The false positives are caused by macros passed to other macros and by
some macro expansions that did not have an extra semicolon.

This cleans up about 1,000 of the current 10,000 -Wextra-semi-stmt
warnings in linux-next.

An update to [RFC] clang tooling cleanup
This change adds the clang-tidy-fix as a top level target and
uses it to do the cleaning. The next iteration will do a loop of
cleaners. This will mean breaking clang-tidy-fix out into its own
processing function 'run_fixers'.

Makefile: Add toplevel target clang-tidy-fix to makefile

Calls clang-tidy with -fix option for a set of checkers that
programatically fixes the kernel source in place, treewide.
