Subject: [PATCH v3 0/4] new ethernet address manipulation checks

Changes in v3:
- Fixed handling of MEMSET issues (due to '/s' at the end the same 
  error/warning was reported several times)
- Added handling of multiline PREFER_ETHER_ADDR_COPY warnings
- Review: added --fix option to eth_zero/broadcast_addr checks
- All new warnings are multi-line aware (fixes work on single lines only)

Changes in v2 (applied review comments):
- Fixed indentation in both patches
- Detect memset(foo, 0x00, ETH_ALEN)
- Detect memset(foo, 255, ETH_ALEN)
- Rephrased 2/2 commit message

Patch Notes from v1:
Add 3 new warnings to checkpatch:
Replace memcmp(foo, bar, ETH_ALEN) with ether_addr_equal*()
Replace memset(foo, 0, ETH_ALEN) with eth_zero_addr()
Replace memset(foo, 0xFF, ETH_ALEN) with eth_broadcast_addr()

Mateusz Kulikowski (4):
  checkpatch: suggest using ether_addr_equal*()
  checkpatch: suggest using eth_zero_addr() and eth_broadcast_addr()
  checkpatch: Fix processing of MEMSET issues
  checkpatch: Add multi-line handling for PREFER_ETHER_ADDR_COPY
