I am not impressed with that tool. See below:

NAK have you tested this on a real system?

Here is the complete loop:

        hwchan = &hw_channels[0];
        while (hwchan && hwchan->datasheet_name) {
                if (hwchan->pre_scale_mux == pre_scale_mux &&
                    hwchan->amux_channel == amux_channel)

Notice how hwchan is used as iterator in hwchan++.

What you are doing will cause a zero-pointer dereference.

Whoever is developing "SVACE" needs to fix the tool to understand
this kind of usage.
