Coverity's static source code analysis has proven to be an effective step towards furthering the quality and security of Linux
-Andrew Morton, Lead Kernel Maintainer
Coverity is a code-analysis tool – an extremely good one, probably at this moment the best in the world.
Several other Coverity issues have been resolved and their fixes have made their way into release candidate 7. I’ve no doubt that Coverity is adding value to our project.
Coverity performs very deep analysis and its results may well surprise you...but rather that than unexpected surprises for your users.
Vulnerability Notifications– We recommend all administrators upgrade immediately. The vulnerability was created in commit. Coverity scan discovered it.
Ah, that’s cool. Pretty neat that an automated tool can catch mutex lock problems in conditional statements wrapped in macros! I’m impressed.
Coverity points out that we do not free in one case and sure enough we forgot.
You have a very good product and provide a great service to the open source community (certainly to the Linux kernel community).
