It's a good idea but sadly doesn't cover whatever the config doesn't
compile. A safer starting point could be

---
@state_var@
struct task_struct *p;
identifier var;
@@
(
var = p->state
|
p->state = var
)

@@
identifier state_var.var;
@@
- var
+ FIXME
---

But I'm hoping we can get something even better from coccinelle, stay
tuned...
