checkpatch: ignore existing CamelCase uses from include/...
When using --strict, CamelCase uses are described with CHECK: messages. These CamelCase uses may be acceptable and should not generate these messages when the variable is already defined in a file from the include/... path. So, change checkpatch to read all the .h files in include/... and look for preexisting CamelCase #defines, typedefs and function prototypes. Add these to the existing camelcase hash so that any uses in the patch or file can be ignored. There are currently ~3500 files in include/. It takes about 10 cpu seconds on my little netbook to grep for and preseed these existing uses. That's about 4x the time for a similar git grep. This preseeding is only done once when using --strict and only when there is a CamelCase use found. If a .git directory is found, it uses 'git ls-files include' If not, it uses 'find $root/include -name "*.h" Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Andy Whitcroft <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <email@example.com>
