Subject: Re: [PATCH] Removing ununsed variable int lo, hi, int data and int i
 from comedi/drivers/dt2814.c.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I am trying to run sparse on drivers/staging directory,
but I am not getting any useful warnings.
Steps that I did:

- Referred https://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/linux-next.html to get
linux-next latest tag next-20200522.
- After that executed following commands:
	- make mrproper; make clean; make distclean
	- make defconfig
	- make menuconfig (Enabled all Staging Drivers with M)
	- make modules_prepare
	- make C=1 M=drivers/staging (Also tried individual directories
	  inside staging directory e.g. make C=1 M=drivers/staging/comedi/drivers)

I am not getting any warning, I have attached the output in text format.

Any pointers for finding warning using sparse in drivers/staging
directory will be helpful. I really appretiate your guidance in this
regard.
