Hi Shuah,

Are you refering to the following errors?

ERROR: Macros with complex values should be enclosed in parentheses
#144: FILE: include/kunit/test.h:456:
+       kunit_binary_assert, KUNIT_INIT_BINARY_ASSERT_STRUCT

ERROR: Macros with complex values should be enclosed in parentheses
#146: FILE: include/kunit/test.h:458:
+       kunit_binary_ptr_assert, KUNIT_INIT_BINARY_PTR_ASSERT_STRUCT

These values should *not* be in parentheses. I am guessing checkpatch is
getting confused and thinks that these are complex expressions, when
they are not.

I ignored the errors since I figured checkpatch was complaining

I could refactor the code to remove these macros entirely, but I think
the code is cleaner with them.

What would you prefer I do?

NB: These macros are introduced in: "[PATCH v13 05/18] kunit: test: add
the concept of expectations"
