Did you review/test this patch?
or point out something about existing code?


The error message points to line 63:
COCCIINCLUDE=${LINUXINCLUDE//-I/-I }


My code
FILE=${COCCI#$srctree/}
works on dash.
I believe your post does not block my patch.


Actually, scripts/coccicheck contains three lines
that depend on bash.

line 63: COCCIINCLUDE=${LINUXINCLUDE//-I/-I }
line 64: COCCIINCLUDE=${COCCIINCLUDE// -include/ --include}
line 134: if [[ $? -ne 0 ]]; then


They are legitimate because I see the correct shebang #!/bin/bash
on the top of this script.


CONFIG_SHELL is not described in Documentation/kbuild/kbuild.txt
so Kbuild does not expect CONFIG_SHELL overridden from the command line.
(at least for now).



Some sell scripts in kernel tree are specified with "#!/bin/sh"
and others with "#!/bin/bash"
Both of the cases are invoked with CONFIG_SHELL in Kbuild,
so several scripts give error with CONFIG_SHELL=dash.

For example,

masahiro at grover:~/ref/linux$ make CONFIG_SHELL=dash tags
  GEN     tags
./scripts/tags.sh: 159: ./scripts/tags.sh: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
make: *** [tags] Error 2


Of course, it will be possible to improve this situation if we like,
but should be discussed in a new thread since this is
about Kbuild infrastructure, not a coccinelle-related topic.
