+//# This script is designed to correct code where assignments exist in if
+//# conditions. It is only capable of handling a subset of such problems.
+//# Ideally it would handle all checkpatch errors of the following type:
+//#	ERROR: do not use assignment in if condition
+//#
+//# For example:
+//#	if(result = myfun())
+//#
+//# would become:
+//#	result = myfun();
+//#	if(result)
+//
