Hi all,
I am trying to run on latest kernel version 5.1.0 source tree
from orig head 80f232121b69cc69a31ccb2b38c1665d770b0710

When I run, for every file I get the follwong or similar
error. Could you please help if this is my environment issue or actually
error in code which I need to fix ?

I executed the following in command prompt.
perl scripts/ -f drivers/staging/rtl8712/* |less

The error I observe
FAIL: "Blob or Tree named 'other' not found"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "scripts/", line 240, in <module>
    spdx = read_spdxdata(repo)
  File "scripts/", line 41, in read_spdxdata
    for el in lictree[d].traverse():
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/git/objects/", line 298, in
    return self.join(item)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/git/objects/", line 244, in
    raise KeyError(msg % file)
KeyError: "Blob or Tree named 'other' not found"

total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 checks, 56 lines checked

Please suggest me.

Best Regards
