If you are using long file (more than 4Gb) support for C standart library (via defining _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64 macro or something else) and lint shows you errors like this:

(88) warning: constant in conditional context

argument unused in function
    (18) sig in sighandler

value type declared inconsistently
