Subject: [PATCH] Coccinelle: Add a SmPL script for the reconsideration of
 redundant dev_err() calls

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Thu, 20 Jun 2019 19:12:53 +0200

The function “devm_ioremap_resource” contains appropriate error reporting.
Thus it can be questionable to present another error message
at other places.

Provide design options for the adjustment of affected source code
by the means of the semantic patch language (Coccinelle software).
