Hi Shetu,

Currently backports does not work with linux-next, we do not have the
resources to maintain backports on linux-next any more, so we only
target Linus RC releases, 5.7-rc3 is the latest one, so you should use
that one instead of linux-next.

I am using coccinelle 1.0.7 and for me it currently works, I also do not
like the error messages.

I had a look at the patch and you can probably remove it anyway, it is
for kernel < 3.6 and this is not supported anyway.
