Could you show me an example of the injected syntax error,
and how this commit will improve the diagnostic?


For example, I changed as follows:

diff --git a/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpu/arm,mali-midgard.yaml
b/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpu/arm,mali-midgard.yaml
index 47bc1ac36426..358cb1fa4bb6 100644
--- a/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpu/arm,mali-midgard.yaml
+++ b/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpu/arm,mali-midgard.yaml
@@ -89,7 +89,7 @@ required:
- clocks

allOf:
- - if:
+ - if2:
properties:
compatible:
contains:


The tool clearly explains the cause of the error.
I am struggling to understand what the current problem is.
