How are the chances to determine which implementation details from a source file
like "/usr/src/linux-stable/drivers/media/pci/ttpci/av7110_ipack.c" cause an
especially long processing time?

Can the execution durations be measured for the other files in an efficient way
where the source code analysis was performed earlier?

The Coccinelle software manages timeouts already. Would you like to print
execution durations in a specific data format so that they can be better
analysed afterwards?

Regards,
Markus
