I think you're right. Or I fear you're right.

But this problem is present in so many drivers that a generic
fixup needs to be done with a script and across an entire subsystem
at once, and besides I'm not sure of these macros disturb so much.

They are documentation in a sense, albeit a kind of documentation
we used before we had git to record the actual authors of the
code.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
