Subject: [PATCH] scripts: coccinelle: kfree with TRACE_RET before ref is ok
	(resent)


kfree.cocci currently triggers on constructs like
(resending with proper CC list and subject line)

drivers/staging/rts5208/spi.c
596    if (retval < 0) {
597            kfree(buf);
598            rtsx_clear_spi_error(chip);
599            spi_set_err_code(chip, SPI_HW_ERR);
600            TRACE_RET(chip, STATUS_FAIL);
601    }
602
603    rtsx_stor_access_xfer_buf(buf, pagelen, srb, &index, &offset,
                            TO_XFER_BUF);

with:

./drivers/staging/rts5208/spi.c:603:28-31: ERROR: reference preceded 
by free on line 597

but this should be fine - so TRACE_RET is added to the list of calls 
"protecting" access to freed objects see drivers/staging/rts5208/trace.h
