Just my two cents but:

1. You *can* use a static analysis too to find bugs or other issues.
2. However, you should manually do the commits and proper commit
messages to subsystems based on your findings. And I generally think
that if one contributes code one should also at least smoke test changes
somehow.

I don't know if I'm alone with my opinion. I just think that one should
also do the analysis part and not blindly create and submit patches.

Anyway, I'll apply the TPM change at some point. As I said they were
for better. Thanks.
