src/c/src/lib/libbsp/powerpc/shared/flash/flash.c:841]: (style) Checking if unsigned variable 'got' is less than zero.

Source code is

if ( got < 0 ) {


while ( (got = bfill(fd, buf, b->fblksz)) > 0 && sz ) {


uint32_t got;


static int
bfill(int fd, char *buf, int size)

Suggest use local variable of type int for the return value from bfill.

This file is quite sloppy with integer types in general.
