As I recall, not too different than things are today -- sparse flagged a 
bunch of stylistic issues that I fixed, like:

void some_func() { ... } => void some_func(void) { ... }

extern void some_func(void) { ... } => void some_func(void) { ... }

etc. But given that there are 3000 odd warnings (mostly bogus), I doubt 
I made a significant dent on the total warning count.

Also, I don't recall sparse picking up any significant errors or 
problems. As I said, I've been meaning to explore if that's all that 
sparse can do -- I just looked at the lowest of the low-hanging fruit.
