It can be sufficient for the usual purposes of the shell script “scripts/coccicheck”.

I would like to point out that further development efforts will be needed
if such a special directory handling should be avoided generally.
How much do care about consequences if parameters for additional parallelisation
would be passed over the command line option (or the environment variable)
“SPFLAGS” as it is described in the file “Documentation/dev-tools/coccinelle.rst”?
