Subject: [merged] tree-wide-convert-open-calls-to-remove-spaces-to-skip_spaces-lib-function.patch removed from -mm tree


The patch titled
tree-wide: convert open calls to remove spaces to skip_spaces() lib function
has been removed from the -mm tree. Its filename was
tree-wide-convert-open-calls-to-remove-spaces-to-skip_spaces-lib-function.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

The current -mm tree may be found at http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: tree-wide: convert open calls to remove spaces to skip_spaces() lib function
From: Andr? Goddard Rosa <[email protected]>

Makes use of skip_spaces() defined in lib/string.c for removing leading
spaces from strings all over the tree.

It decreases lib.a code size by 47 bytes and reuses the function tree-wide:
text data bss dec hex filename
64688 584 592 65864 10148 (TOTALS-BEFORE)
64641 584 592 65817 10119 (TOTALS-AFTER)

Also, while at it, if we see (*str && isspace(*str)), we can be sure to
remove the first condition (*str) as the second one (isspace(*str)) also
evaluates to 0 whenever *str == 0, making it redundant. In other words,
"a char equals zero is never a space".

Julia Lawall tried the semantic patch (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr) below,
and found occurrences of this pattern on 3 more files:
drivers/leds/led-class.c
drivers/leds/ledtrig-timer.c
drivers/video/output.c

@@
expression str;
@@

( // ignore skip_spaces cases
while (*str && isspace(*str)) { \(str++;\|++str;\) }
|
- *str &&
isspace(*str)
)
