that's another issue

WARNING: externs should be avoided in .c files
#35: FILE: drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_efuse.c:35:
+bool

CHECK: Lines should not end with a '('
#36: FILE: drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_efuse.c:36:
---

but that's what I see in line 35


#define REG_EFUSE_CTRL 0x0030
#define EFUSE_CTRL REG_EFUSE_CTRL /* E-Fuse Control. */

bool<--------------------------------- line 35
Efuse_Read1ByteFromFakeContent(
struct adapter *padapter,
u16 Offset,
u8 *Value);
bool
Efuse_Read1ByteFromFakeContent(
struct adapter *padapter,

another one...

WARNING: externs should be avoided in .c files
#40: FILE: drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_ioctl_set.c:40:
+u8 rtw_do_join(struct adapter *padapter); <-------- do I miss
something about extern keyword?

CHECK: Unnecessary parentheses around padapter->mlmepriv
#45: FILE: drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/core/rtw_ioctl_set.c:45:

thank you,
