I am always happy to run test builds on my infrastructure.

Just have a look at the output of https://kerneltests.org/builders/,
in the 'master' and/or 'next' column. There are many additional warnings
in 'next'. Only downside is that you won't see the warnings unless there
are also build errors, but -next tends to have lots of those.

Just wondering ... wouldn't it be possible to run a coccinelle script
to identify those problems automatically, without depending on compile
warnings ? Or smatch/sparse, maybe ?

Thanks,
Guenter
