checkpatch: complex macro should allow the empty do while loop
Andy Whitcroft [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:10:06 +0000 (15:10 -0800)]
It is common to stub out a function as below, this is triggering a complex
macro format incorrectly.  Sort this out:

    #define cma_early_regions_reserve(reserve)   do { } while (0)
