I have been impressed with scripts/checkpatch.pl (other than it is
perl and 10 times larger - it covers a lot more common errors and
style nits).  https://wintergreenworks.wordpress.com/2012/05/30/checkpatch-linux-coding-style-check/
In addition, sparse has been invaluable in catching endian errors and
32-->64 bit overflow issues and lots of common C errors.    Has anyone
looked at using these for Samba?
