Subject: Re: [Cocci] [PATCH v2] coccinelle: api: check for propagation of
 error from platform_get_irq

Commit message:
* … of the platform_get_irq() function seems to get dropped too often.

* Why do you concentrate on a single function name?
  Do you plan to extend this source code analysis approach?

Are there more unchecked return values which are interesting
for further considerations?
