Thanks anyway!  ;-) (But of course, we prefer tested patches.)

Do you have any further experience with Coccinelle?  As I have read on
<http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/>, ``beyond collateral evolutions, Coccinelle
is successfully used (by us and others) for finding and fixing bugs in
systems code.''  I supposed this would be things like unlocking acquired
locks on *all* function exit paths, etc.?  (I began collecting some notes
on <http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/open_issues/locking_issues.html>.)
Interesting for you?
