[PATCH] CodingStyle: add some more error handling guidelines
commit commit ea04036032edda6f771c1381d03832d2ed0f6c31 ("CodingStyle: add some more error handling guidelines") suggests never naming goto labels after the goto location - that is the error that is handled. But it's actually pretty common and IMHO it's a reasonable style provided each error gets its own label, and each label comes after the matching cl...

[PATCH 4/4] virtio_blk: Rename a jump label in virtblk_get_id()

It's also not clear why you added a space. The CodingStyle example does not use a space before the label.

vhost_dev_set_owner() is an example of why come-from labels are bad style. devel/drivers/vhost/vhost.c 473 /* Caller should have device mutex */ 474 long vhost_dev_set_owner(struct vhost_dev *dev) 475 { 476 struct task_struct *worker; 477 int err; 478 479 /* Is there an owner already? */ 480 if

Naming labels after what "needs to be skipped" doesn't work. How does that meaning make sense for err_cgroup in vhost_dev_set_owner()? What needs to be skipped here?

I just can't resist objecting to that example ;) In my experience, finding the exact same path back after hiking up a mountain is really hard. Especially if you are in enough trouble already to get stuck. Up
