Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] Coccinelle: extend memdup_user rule with
 vmemdup_user()

Such a software evolution is also interesting.

How do you think about to achieve the desired data processing by the application
of a SmPL disjunction like the following?

 to =
(
-     \( kmalloc \| kzalloc \) (size, \( GFP_KERNEL \| GFP_USER \))
+     memdup_user(from, size)
|
-     \( kvmalloc \| kvzalloc \) (size, \( GFP_KERNEL \| GFP_USER \))
+     vmemdup_user(from, size)
)
 ;


Unfortunately, the Coccinelle software does not like the following
SmPL code variant so far.

 to =
(
-     \( kmalloc \| kzalloc \)
+     memdup_user
|
-     \( kvmalloc \| kvzalloc \)
+     vmemdup_user
)
                 (
-                 size, \( GFP_KERNEL \| GFP_USER \)
+                 from, size
                 );
