drivers/char/ds1286.c: use time_before, time_before_eq, etc
The functions time_before, time_before_eq, time_after, and time_after_eq are more robust for comparing jiffies against other values. A simplified version of the semantic patch making this change is as follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/) // <smpl> @ change_compare_np @ expression E; @@ ( - jiffies <= E + time_before_eq(jiffies,E) | - jiffies >= E + time_after_eq(jiffies,E) | - jiffies < E + time_before(jiffies,E) | - jiffies > E + time_after(jiffies,E) ) @ include depends on change_compare_np @ @@ #include <linux/jiffies.h> @ no_include depends on !include && change_compare_np @ @@ #include <linux/...> + #include <linux/jiffies.h> // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Cc: Jiri Slaby <jirislaby@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
