Yeah. My patch was already applied.

I've had an unpublished Smatch check for this for a while but I've been
re-writing it recently to make it more generic so that it worked for
all the different list_for_each type macros. I'm going to publish it
soon.

Of course, all the real bugs are fixed so the remaining warnings are
false positives.

dan carpenter
