Not as far as I can see.  As I mentioned, Coccinelle will only process
what it can parse.  A do ... while with no semicolon at the end is not
correct C (even though it is completely appropriate in the context of a
macro).  Actually, I thought we did something for this case, but maybe it
is not being parsed as what my rule matches.

You did say that checkpatch was giving a lot of noise.  In the end, is it
actually just that there are a lot of changes to make?
