Further implementation details from this SmPL script caught my software
development attention.

* Is there a need to add the specification “when any” to the SmPL ellipses
  before such assignment statements?

* A limited search approach was expressed. Will additional source code variations
  become relevant?
  + switch statement
  + if branches with single statements
  + conditional operator

I wonder that two assignments should be excluded here according to
the same expression metavariable.


+@...ree depends on patch exists@
…
+- \(kfree\|kvfree\)(E)
++ vfree(E)

Would you like to use a SmPL code variant like the following
at any more places?
(Is it occasionally helpful to increase the change precision?)

+-\(kfree\|kvfree\)
++vfree
+      (E)

Markus
