Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 1/1] dccp: fix auto-loading of dccp(_probe)

Hi Neil,

I have tested your patch, it works fine thanks to the repeated execution of the macro
argument. I have reformatted it, removing the inner parentheses, which I think is
justified since macros copy their arguments in full. Also converted your email to a
drafted commit message. Due to this, have not copied your signed-off -- if you are
ok, please add, this should be submitted asap.

dccp: fix loading of dccp_probe

This fixes commit (38ff3e6bb987ec583268da8eb22628293095d43b) ("dccp_probe:
Fix module load dependencies between dccp and dccp_probe", from 15 Jan).

It fixes the construction of the first argument of try_then_request_module(),
where only valid return codes from the first argument should be returned.

What we do now is assign the result of register_jprobe() to ret, without
the side effect of the comparison.
