Any specific reason why you did not test build your change before
submitting it?

Apologies, we can drop the patch. I was trying to find an error as part
of the eudyptula challenge and thought I was compiling the driver
correctly. Upon further examination, the macro cannot be written with a
do-while because it is defining functions.

The "eudyptula challenge" and other first patch guides should be updated
to tell people to search for their code on before
sending a patch.

The "eudyptula challenge" is not currently running and has not been for
many years now so I do not know where the original poster got their
information from.

The challenge is in fact closed but the list of exercises is publicly
available. From my limited experience, it is still one of the best
resources for getting started in linux kernel development even if it is
probably a bit outdated, and lacking a section about testing your
changes properly.

Thanks and sorry again for the mishap,
