      networking: add and use skb_put_u8() · 634fef61
      Johannes Berg authored
      Joe and Bjørn suggested that it'd be nicer to not have the
      cast in the fairly common case of doing
      	*(u8 *)skb_put(skb, 1) = c;
      
      Add skb_put_u8() for this case, and use it across the code,
      using the following spatch:
      
          @@
          expression SKB, C, S;
          typedef u8;
          identifier fn = {skb_put};
          fresh identifier fn2 = fn ## "_u8";
          @@
          - *(u8 *)fn(SKB, S) = C;
          + fn2(SKB, C);
      
      Note that due to the "S", the spatch isn't perfect, it should
      have checked that S is 1, but there's also places that use a
      sizeof expression like sizeof(var) or sizeof(u8) etc. Turns
      out that nobody ever did something like
      	*(u8 *)skb_put(skb, 2) = c;
      
      which would be wrong anyway since the second byte wouldn't be
      initialized.

      networking: make skb_put & friends return void pointers · 4df864c1
      Johannes Berg authored
      It seems like a historic accident that these return unsigned char *,
      and in many places that means casts are required, more often than not.
      
      Make these functions (skb_put, __skb_put and pskb_put) return void *
      and remove all the casts across the tree, adding a (u8 *) cast only
      where the unsigned char pointer was used directly, all done with the
      following spatch:
      
          @@
          expression SKB, LEN;
          typedef u8;
          identifier fn = { skb_put, __skb_put };
          @@
          - *(fn(SKB, LEN))
          + *(u8 *)fn(SKB, LEN)
      
          @@
          expression E, SKB, LEN;
          identifier fn = { skb_put, __skb_put };
          type T;
          @@
          - E = ((T *)(fn(SKB, LEN)))
          + E = fn(SKB, LEN)
      
      which actually doesn't cover pskb_put since there are only three
      users overall.
      
      A handful of stragglers were converted manually, notably a macro in
      drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_bsdcomp.c and, oddly enough, one of the many
      instances in net/bluetooth/hci_sock.c. In the former file, I also
      had to fix one whitespace problem spatch introduced.

      networking: introduce and use skb_put_data() · 59ae1d12
      Johannes Berg authored
      A common pattern with skb_put() is to just want to memcpy()
      some data into the new space, introduce skb_put_data() for
      this.
      
      An spatch similar to the one for skb_put_zero() converts many
      of the places using it:
      
          @@
          identifier p, p2;
          expression len, skb, data;
          type t, t2;
          @@
          (
          -p = skb_put(skb, len);
          +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, len);
          |
          -p = (t)skb_put(skb, len);
          +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, len);
          )
          (
          p2 = (t2)p;
          -memcpy(p2, data, len);
          |
          -memcpy(p, data, len);
          )
      
          @@
          type t, t2;
          identifier p, p2;
          expression skb, data;

          t *p;
          ...

          +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, sizeof(t));
          |
          -p = (t *)skb_put(skb, sizeof(t));

          )
          (
          p2 = (t2)p;
          -memcpy(p2, data, sizeof(*p));
          |
